NUPENG COMMENDS NNPC FOR RE-OPENING OF MOSIMI DEPOT

The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has commended the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) for the re- opening of Mosimi Depot.

It praised the efforts of the Group Managing Director of the Corporation, Dr. Maikanti Baru for making it possible after the depot had been closed down for over a year now.

The Union stated that the opening of the Mosimi depot will make distribution of petroleum products to the South-west easy and put less pressure on petroleum tankers that throng the Lagos axis to load.

NUPENG called the NNPC to also re-open the system B line so that petroleum products can be dispensed through that line.

The Union wants the NNPC to also go further to reactivate and re-open the other moribund depots scattered all over the county.

To crown it all, it reiterates the establishment of Pipeline Protection Agency (PPA) will be saddled with the protection of pipelines traversing the nooks and crannies of the country.

The Agency should be well funded and equipped with modern day gadgets like alarms, sensors and helicopters gun-ships with night vision.

NUPENG also commends the NNPC Management under Dr. Maikanti Baru for the increase in refining capacity of the four nation’s refineries by 29%.

The Union praised the new refinery model of each refinery purchasing crude oil at export parity price, processes and sells the corresponding products on its own account.

It reiterated the need for the refineries to work optimally so that the dependence on foreign import of petroleum products will be reduced to the barest minimum.

Comrade (Dr.) Igwe Achese National President
