By Amin Kef (Ranger)

NP (SL) Ltd, Sierra Leone’s premier petroleum products importer and marketer, has set the wheels in motion to supply 5,000 metric tons of fuel to the Republic of Guinea. The process is under the diligent oversight of Sierra Leone’s Vice President, Hon. Dr. Mohamed Juldeh Jalloh, Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Madam Fatmata Wurie, and officials from the Petroleum Regulatory Agency (PRA), who visited the NP SL Terminal on December 22, 2023.

This move comes in the wake of NP (SL) Ltd’s recent announcement of the arrival of over 40,000 metric tons of petroleum products towards the year-end, a substantial effort to curb potential fuel scarcity and ensure a steady supply for consumers.

The arrivals comprise various types of fuels, with the first delivery of 10,000 metric tons of petrol recorded on December 5 aboard the MT Taurus vessel. Following this, the MT TBN vessel is set to bring in an additional 14,000 metric tons of petrol on December 17 and a significant shipment of 20,000 metric tons of diesel on December 20, as part of a collaborative agreement between NP and its partner, Addax.

Over the years, NP has maintained a steady reputation as the leading petroleum importing and marketing entity in Sierra Leone, given its history of shipping the country’s largest fuel consignments.

In a statement, NP-SL Ltd’s CEO, Mr. Kobi Walker iterated the company’s commitment to maintaining an adequate stock of petroleum products in the country despite challenges with foreign exchange and pricing. He affirmed that NP and Leoneoil are the primary importers supporting several other oil marketing companies in the country.

“As a responsible corporate citizen, NP will persistently work to ensure an abundant supply of petroleum products in all towns, cities, and villages throughout Sierra Leone. Our efforts aim to keep the market consistently supplied and support the nation’s fuel needs,” Walker assured.

Echoing his sentiments, Dr. Williette James, NP-SL Ltd’s Communications Manager, stressed the company’s commitment to meeting the nation’s energy needs during peak periods such as the festive season. She assured the timely delivery of petroleum products to filling stations across the country, thereby preventing potential disruptions.

As NP-SL Ltd continues to play a crucial role in Sierra Leone’s energy landscape, these measures are poised to ensure a seamless and uninterrupted fuel supply, significantly benefiting the populace #1stforcustomercare
