Even while the year-to-date daily average maintained at 64.94 million litres over the time period, the data revealed that 59 million litres of the product were evacuated daily during the week. 1.46 billion liters of gasoline were evacuated to states, with 80.41 percent of that occurring at the 27 top loading depots, with a minimum evacuation of 5 million liters.
Recently, there has been a persistent gasoline shortage in Nigeria. In the meanwhile, today’s presidential flag-off for the Ebenyi-A exploration well in Nasarawa state’s Obi Local Government Area will be conducted by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The activity is anticipated to highlight the NNPC’s exploration of crude oil in Nasarawa state, and adding to Gombe/Bauchi and Kogi as places where oil is found in the northern region.
