The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has commended the Pipelines and Product Marketing Company (PPMC) for having reactivated 22 ailing depots, making movement of petroleum products hitch-free in the last three years.
In its commendation of the PPMC for the progress, IPMAN said on Monday that the reactivated depots were under system 2B. In a commendation letter sent to PPMC, IPMAN also noted with delight, the renewal of facilities at Mosimi depot.
The statement, signed by the chairman of depots and the zonal officers, was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, on Monday. It reads in part:
“In a short while, all depots that are not functional would soon be brought to life… We have also been informed of the extensive… expansion of the Atlas Cove jetty and wish to congratulate PPMC for the effort to make products available nationwide without hitch.
“We have also noticed the determination of PPMC and NNPC to tackle the ugly problem of pipeline vandalism and the efforts to tackle vandals at black spots at Arepo and other areas is beginning to yield positive results,” he said.
