The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) and an international company, NIMEX Petroleum Group, have plans to import 100,000 metric tones of petroleum products to complement the efforts of the Nigerian government in driving the deregulation policy, Leadership reported.

IPMAN’s President, Obasi Lawson, declared that the product which will be imported by NIMEX Petroleum Group will be distributed to marketers across the country to augment supply received from Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and other sources.

Lawson stated that the products would be imported in order to make petrol available in the country, as the quantum of petrol received from NNPC was insufficient.

According to the Guardian, NIMEX Petroleum Group, with a global footprint in more than 15 countries in Africa, has three decades of experience in establishing services in petroleum-related trading and in fostering relationships.
