NP (SL) Ltd, a formidable indigenous business entity in Sierra Leone, continues to showcase its unwavering commitment to sustainability and innovation in the petroleum industry. Founded by 35 Sierra Leoneans who invested their end-of-service benefits, the company has emerged as a beacon of socio-economic development, with branches spanning across neighbouring Guinea, Liberia, Ivory Coast and The Gambia.

The company’s sustainability attributes are evident in its timely importation of 7.4 metric tonnes of fuel, equivalent to over 10 million liters, through the arrival of MT Seaways Juju at its Kissy Terminal in Freetown. This significant fuel influx, although not enough to assuage the fuel needs in the entire country, comes as a relief amidst looming fuel crises and prolonged queues witnessed at Filling Stations nationwide.

Indeed, this latest development is a pointer to the fact that the company is not only committed to continue providing petroleum products, amidst the ongoing Ukraine-Russia war that intermittently disrupt supply chains but is the leading petroleum oil marketing company in the country. Against such a backdrop it is important for other player in the petroleum industry to step up in order to address the pressing need for fuel in the country.

Renowned for its steadfast operations, NP (SL) Ltd has remained a dependable partner to both Government institutions and the people of Sierra Leone. Providing substantial credits and occasionally subsidizing petroleum product prices, NP (SL) contributes to maintaining stability in the country’s economy, even amid challenges faced by the industry.

Moreover, NP (SL) Ltd has unveiled the pilot phase of its Access and Energy Pass Card, a groundbreaking initiative aimed at revolutionizing fueling experiences and promoting cashless transactions. This innovative smart card not only enhances access and efficiency in energy management systems but also ensures seamless fuel distribution across the nation.

The Access and Energy Pass Card, aptly termed “FUBU” (For Us, By Us), underscores NP’s commitment to customer-centric solutions and a cashless future. Equipped with user-friendly features and robust security protocols, the card offers real-time transaction updates via SMS, ensuring transparency and accountability in every fuel purchase.

Customers can conveniently recharge their cards at designated stations or the Head Office, with the flexibility to reverse transactions if needed. Station owners also benefit from streamlined financial operations, with direct credits to their bank accounts for transactions made through the card.

The launch of the Access and Energy Pass Card marks a significant milestone in the fuel industry, with NP (SL) Ltd leading the charge towards efficiency and customer satisfaction.

By addressing immediate fuel shortages and prioritizing consumer needs, the company solidifies its position as the premier oil marketing company in Sierra Leone.

NP (SL)’s dedication to sustainability, operational resilience, and customer-centric innovation sets a high standard for the industry. As the company continues to thrive and expand its reach, it remains a vital contributor to Sierra Leone’s socio-economic development and a symbol of indigenous excellence in business.
