Scarcity: NNPC evacuates 1.523bn litres of Fuel
The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited evacuated 1.523 billion litres of PMS between May 16 and June 5, 2022 in a bid to keep scarcity at Bay.
However, queues formed by motorists daily in fuel stations across Abuja and environs, still persist while many outlets still do not dispense petrol.
Figures obtained from NNPC showed that between May 16 to 29, 2022, the oil firm recorded an average national evacuation of 69.04 million litres. This implies that NNPC evacuated about 966.56 million litres during the two-week period.
Additional data from the company indicated that it evacuated a total of 556.71 million litres between May 30 and June 5, 2022. A summation of the volumes of fuel evacuated from May 16 to June 5 showed that 1.523 billion litres was supplied across the country.
