Mode of Operation
How does the company operate, one may ask? The PPMC receives crude oil from the NNPC unit called the NATIONAL PETROLEUM INVESTMENTS MANAGEMENT SERVICES(NAPIMS). PPMC then supplies the crude oil to the NNPC local refineries however, petroleum products are sometimes imported to supplement local production when the local refineries are unable to process enough for the country’s needs.
Petroleum products are either imported or refined locally are received by the PPMC through import jetties and pipelines and distributed through pipelines to depots strategically located all over called bridging to designated retail outlets. There is also provision for using the rail system to move from some of the PPMC depots.
