The Pipelines and Product Marketing Company (PPMC) says it has started overhauling and building additional storage facilities in all NNPC depots across the country.
The PPMC’s Managing Director, Mr Haruna Momoh, said the aim was to increase the nation’s fuel reserves.
According to Momoh, additional storage facilities will enable the country to store up to 160 million litres of petroleum products.
He said that the projects, which started in 2012, were expected to be completed by December.
Momoh said that a storage facility capable of storing 80 million litres of petroleum products was being built at Mosinmi depot in Ogun.
“The on-going project at Mosinmi is time-bound. We have to do it and get it right.
“There are four tanks being worked on at the moment in Mosinmi. A new one is being built, while the other three are under rehabilitation.
