Mr Auwalu Sarki, Director, Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has enjoined lubricant producers in the country to look beyond the shores of Nigeria and target the export market in the distribution of their products.
A statement signed by Mr Paul Osu, Head, Public Affairs, DPR on Wednesday in Lagos, said Sarki gave the charge when he hosted members of the Lubricant Producers Association of Nigeria (LUPAN) in a virtual meeting recently.
Sarki noted that members of LUPAN had the capacity and resources to produce for exports, as was done in the past.
He assured the members that DPR would provide adequate support through its robust regulatory framework to enable them to achieve the mandate.
According to him, the DPR, as the regulator of the oil and gas industry in Nigeria, places high premium on its relationship with the association as partners in the realisation of government’s aspiration for the sector.
The DPR boss informed the members that the department would soon begin the implementation of a digital solution, using the short code messaging system to check for adulterated lubricants in the country.
