fuel subsidyThe Federal Government said yesterday it would pay subsidy on premium motor spirit popularly called petrol, from the recoveries made in the first quarter of this year.

This is contained in the latest Petroleum Product Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) template released in Abuja.
It said between January and March this year, the Federal Government was able to save about N10 billion as a result of selling the product above the Expected Open Market Price, EOMP.

According to the new template, the EOMP of petrol has risen to N99.38 per litre for independent and major oil marketers and N98.62 per litre for Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) retail outlets. It added that the EOMP was the actual price of the product without subsidy and was based on the current exchange rate of N197 to a dollar.

It also said at the current price of N86 per litre at NNPC retail outlets, the Federal Government was paying N12.62 per litre as subsidy on the product and N12.88 per litre as subsidy for other oil marketers’ price of N86.50.

A breakdown of the template revealed that for NNPC retail outlets and independent and major oil marketers, the landing cost of PMS imported into the country was N84.32 and N85.08 per litre respectively,

It stated that the distribution margin, which include retailers, transportation, bridging fund and dealers margin among others, stood at N14.30 for both the NNPC and other marketers.

According to the statement, this brings the current expected open market price to N98.62 and N99.38 for NNPC retail outlets and other marketers respectively.
