NNPC Ltd clarifies Lagos Depot fire incident .…Says normalcy restored

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC Ltd) has clarified that the fire incident at a tank farm in Marine Beach, Apapa, Lagos, was at a depot belonging to HOGL Energy Ltd (Honeywell Depot), and not an NNPC Retail Ltd.’s facility as circulated by early responders.
The fire, which has since been extinguished, according to a statement by Olufemi O. Soneye, Chief Corporate Communications Officer, NNPC Ltd., was as a result of petroleum products spillage within the perimeter of the tank farm.
Meanwhile, NNPC Ltd and other depots in the area have resumed loading activities, the statement said, stressing that “the incident will, in no way, affect petroleum products supply and distribution across the country.”
