    NNPC Questions And Answers

    PPMC / Pipelines And Products Marketing Company [Limited].
    What Is It?

    PPMC is a subsidiary of NNPC and is in charge of supplies Crude Oil to Refineries for refining and
    evacuates Petroleum Products from the Refineries for
    distribution to the domestic markets. It also ensures that daily
    National demand for Petroleum Products are met by augmenting
    local supplies from Refineries with import. In addition, PPMC markets other special products such as HPFO, LPFO,
    Bitumen etc.

    It was incorporated in November 1988 as a wholly owned subsidiary of
    NNPC, and commenced operation in January 1989.

    How Can One Buy Kerosene From PPMC?

    Buying Kerosene directly from NNPC/PPMC is possible. To be able to purchase Kerosene from PPMC, you need to have authorized storage facility and be a registered marketer.

    How Can One Get This Product Allocation?

    There are different types of products. The white products i.e PMS
    – Petrol, HHK – House Hold Kerosene, ATK – Aviation Turbine Kerosene,
    AGO – Diesel. These are allocated to Major and Independent Marketers.
    They sell these products in their various outlets.

    However, in the past these Marketers use powerful and influential members of the public to obtain allocation for products they do not actually require, and turn around to sell the products
    to those who actually need it. There are other products mainly for Industrial users who
    have operational facilities.

    These products such as LPFO, SRG, Bitumen & LPG are allocated to users directly.

    However, some of these industrial users prefer to sell
    the allocation instead of using the product in their factory.
    Machinery has been put in place to identify specific industries engaged in this bad practice
    for appropriate sanction. HPFO is mainly for export.
