Oil Marketers Advocate Reduction in Pump Price of Dangote Refinery’s Diesel

The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), the largest downstream marketing association, voiced its concerns in an interview with The PUNCH, highlighting the high cost of the commodity at N1,225 per liter from the indigenous refinery. They argued that since the product is produced locally, its price should be lower than imported diesel.

Similarly, the Petroleum Products Retail Outlets Owners Association of Nigeria also advocated for a reduction in the price of Dangote’s diesel, emphasizing the need to consider the high logistics costs associated with transporting the product from Lagos, where the refinery is situated.

Oil marketers pointed out that diesel imported by some traders is being landed in Nigeria at N1,250 per liter due to the strengthening of the naira against the dollar. They argue that this should serve as a basis for Dangote Refinery to adjust its pricing accordingly.

The groups are seeking the intervention of the Federal Government and hope to persuade the refinery’s management to review the pricing structure, taking into account the absence of vessel costs and import charges associated with locally produced diesel.

IPMAN and other industry stakeholders are set to hold meetings with Dangote Refinery’s commercial department next week to address these pricing concerns and seek a resolution. They aim to ensure that the price of diesel reflects the reduced costs and benefits of local production.

The commencement of diesel sales from the Dangote Refinery marks a significant development in Nigeria’s petroleum industry, with expectations of a potential reduction in diesel prices and increased availability of refined products in the domestic market.
