Lagos depot fire incident won’t affect fuel supply -NNPC Ltd

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd. (NNPC Ltd) has assured that the fire incident in a depot in Lagos will, in no way, affect petroleum products supply and distribution across the country.

Chief Corporate Communications Officer, NNPC Ltd., Mr. Olufemi Soneye, said this in a statement on Friday in Lagos.

Soneye said that the fire incident at a tank farm in Marine Beach, Apapa, Lagos, was at a depot belonging to HOGL Energy Ltd. (Honeywell depot), and not an NNPC Retail Ltd’s facility as circulated by early responders.

He said that the fire, which has since been extinguished, was as a result of petroleum products spillage within the perimeter of the tank farm.

Soneye said that NNPC and other depots in the area had resumed loading activities. (NAN)
