The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has achieved 98 per cent automation of all transactions involving the supply, marketing and sale of the various grades and blends of Nigeria’s crude oil across the world.
Group General Manager, Crude Oil Marketing Division of the Corporation, Malam Mele Kyari, stated yesterday in an interview with Oil & Gas Forum, NNPC Weekly TV show that the automation exercise which would be concluded in 2018 had enabled the corporation to achieve an end-to-end monitoring of every barrel of crude oil sold in the country.

With these words on Thursday, the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) offered solution to the lingering scarcity in the country.
