Lagos depot fire incident will not affect products supply �

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, NNPCL, has said the recent fire incident at the Honeywell Depot in Apapa, Lagos State will not affect the supply of petroleum products across the country.

The NNPCL on Friday clarified that the facility was not owned by the company as earlier circulated.

The company through its Chief Corporate Communications Officer, Olufemi Soneye in a statement explained that the fire incident was a result of petroleum products spillage.

The statement partly reads: "The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited wishes to clarify that the fire incident at a tank farm in Marine Beach, Apapa, Lagos, was at a Depot belonging to HOGL Energy Ltd. (Honeywell Depot) and not an NNPC Retail Ltd. facility, as circulated by early responders.

"The fire, which has since been extinguished, was as a result of petroleum products spillage within the perimeter of the tank farm.

"Meanwhile, NNPC Ltd. and other Depots in the area have resumed loading activities. NNPC assures that the incident will, in no way, affect petroleum products supply and distribution across the country. "
