It is now well known that, NP-SL, being very compassionate in enhancing Customer Care recently made frantic moves to ensure the shipment of 44,000 metric tonnes of petroleum products prior to the festive season, a step in the right direction geared towards averting any form of shortage during this important period. Such a laudable move is indeed a clear indication and manifestation that the indigenous importing and marketing entity of high standard petroleum products is one that is not only caring but doggedly committed to national development.
Management of the company wants to assure its numerous esteemed customers across the nation and the general public that as we are about to bid farewell to 2023, it will avail them quality products during this festive season and will continue to do all within its purview to make available such petroleum products in the New Year, 2024.
It also wants to take the opportunity to wish the Government and People of Sierra Leone a Merry Christmas and Prosperous 2024 further promising that as we are about to enter into another year, it will endeavour to be at a vantage position to continue to roll out more goodies, encapsulated in its Social Corporate Responsibility, that will positively impact lives and communities.
Undoubtedly, the privately owned petroleum marketing company stands as a shining example of indigenous success, its enduring resilience a testament to its robust foundation and adept management.
It is worthy of note that over time, NP-SL’s shareholders and managerial team have consistently fueled the company’s ascent through visionary ideas and strategic initiatives.
A key driver of such an achievement lies in the unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction which NP-SL has demonstrated through exceptional dedication to meeting the diverse needs of its esteemed clientele across the nation, fostering an environment of trust and reliability.
With a solid foundation in place, NP-SL has expanded its horizons by establishing branches in Guinea, Liberia, Ivory Coast, and The Gambia. The success of these branches not only mirrors the company’s domestic achievements but also showcases its capacity to thrive on the international stage.

Also, a standout achievement for NP has been the introduction of NP Gas cookers, providing a safe and hygienic alternative for cooking purposes. These cookers, available at NP’s filling stations and authorized dealers, offer a practical solution for health-conscious consumers looking to move away from traditional cooking methods.
In terms of fostering local talent, NP-SL’s commitment shines through as a beacon of success.
