NP (SL) Ltd, renowned among Sierra Leone’s petroleum marketing companies, stands out prominently for its steadfast commitment to enhancing customer care and satisfaction. At the forefront of reliability in prompt service delivery, NP (SL) Ltd ensures a consistent supply of high-grade petrol, diesel, kerosene, and other petroleum products, thereby preventing shortages nationwide.

Distinguished for its indigenous ownership and unwavering dedication, NP-SL Ltd has earned widespread acclaim for its role in national and sub-regional markets. A recent survey reaffirmed NP’s status as a resilient indigenous company, deeply embedded in the fabric of Sierra Leonean society. With an all-Sierra Leonean workforce, NP-SL Ltd exemplifies commitment and resilience, significantly contributing to local empowerment and economic stability.

Beyond profitability, NP-SL Ltd fosters a symbiotic relationship with its customers and various sectors, offering affordable petroleum products and ensuring widespread availability. This customer-centric approach has not only garnered widespread popularity but also solidified NP-SL Ltd’s position as a beloved national institution.

Recognized by regulatory bodies like the Petroleum Directorate for its efficiency, NP-SL Ltd plays a crucial role in the socio-economic landscape. By creating employment opportunities across its operational areas, NP-SL Ltd contributes substantially to poverty alleviation and national development goals.

Innovative initiatives such as the NP Gas Cooker and Smart Card payment systems underscore NP-SL Ltd’s proactive stance towards environmental sustainability and customer convenience.

Just recently, NP (SL) Ltd launched state-of-the-art mobile fuel tanks designed to streamline refueling operations. These advanced tanks, each with a 10,000-liter capacity, are housed in containers and equipped with sophisticated safety and dispensing technology. Key features include mobile refueling capability, advanced safety systems with explosion-proof technology, built-in fire suppression mechanisms, and real-time monitoring through a tank gauging system.

Additionally, the company has introduced the Access and Energy Pass Card as part of its efforts to modernize fueling experiences and promote a cashless economy. This smart card offers both online and offline usability, high-security features, and instant SMS notifications after every transaction. Customers can recharge their cards at designated stations or the Head Office and reverse transactions if needed. The card integrates seamlessly with customers’ mobile numbers, providing real-time transaction updates and facilitating direct credits to station owners’ bank accounts.

This initiative, aptly named “FUBU” (For Us, By Us), reflects NP’s commitment to embracing a cashless future and addressing stakeholder concerns. The Access and Energy Pass Card allows customers to fuel their vehicles independently, eliminating the need for pump attendants and enhancing convenience.

These efforts reinforce NP-SL Ltd’s commitment to technological advancement and societal well-being.

Expanding its footprint beyond Sierra Leone to Liberia, Guinea, Ivory Coast, and The Gambia, NP-SL Ltd continues to set benchmarks in regional fuel supply. Its robust Management team ensures sustained growth and operational excellence, positioning NP-SL Ltd as a pivotal pillar of Sierra Leone’s economy.

As a key contributor to national revenue through substantial tax contributions, NP-SL Ltd plays a vital role in supporting Government initiatives and fostering economic stability. With a steadfast focus on customer confidence and service excellence, NP-SL Ltd remains a beacon of reliability and integrity in the petroleum sector, poised for continued success and expansion.
