Comply with PPMC loading policy, IPMAN tells members

Fuel tankers12 December 2013, Lagos – The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has warned all its members to comply with the “First in First out” (FIFO) policy or face sanctions.

FIFO is a new petroleum products loading policy introduced by the Pipelines and Product Marketing Company. A joint statement by IPMAN National President Aminu Abdulkadir and secretary, Mike Osatuyi, said the association will not hesitate to sanction any member, zonal or depot executive flouting the rule as stipulated by the PPMC.

IPMAN explained in the statement that the policy is aimed at sanitizing the loading system of both PMS (petrol), DPK (kerosene) and AGO (diesel), directing all its zonal chairmen and depots heads to comply to ensure the immediate clearance of outstanding tickets.

PPMC had written IPMAN expressing concerns over delay in compliance to its new products loading policy which entails that products loading at depots should be on ‘first come first serve’ basis.

In a quick response to the PPMC letter, IPMAN had on Tuesday directed all its zonal chairmen from the North-western, Western, Eastern, Mid-Western and North-eastern zones as well as depot managers to ensure strict compliance to the policy.
