The Chief Executive Officer, the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), Engr. Sarki Auwalu, has said that the regulatory agency would soon begin the implementation of a digital solution, using the short code messaging system to search for adulterated lubricants in the country.

Auwalu who stated this when he hosted members of the Lubricant Producers Association of Nigeria (LUPAN) in a virtual meeting, said DPR was working with relevant government agencies to check the influx of sub-standard lubricants into the country and that solution will soon be provided for LUPAN members.

He enjoined lubricant producers in Nigeria to look beyond the shores of Nigeria and target the export market in the distribution of their products.

He gave this advice when he hosted members of the Lubricant Producers Association of Nigeria (LUPAN) in a virtual meeting recently.

The Director stated that members of LUPAN have the capacity and resources to produce for exports as it was done in the past.

He assured the members that DPR will provide adequate support through its robust regulatory framework to enable them to achieve the mandate.

The Director stated that the value created by LUPAN to the Nigerian Economy is immeasurable and that DPR, as the regulator of the oil and gas industry in Nigeria places high premium of its relationship with the Association as partners in the realisation of government’s aspiration for the sector.

Auwalu advised LUPAN to see DPR as a business Enabler that is always ready to ensure investment success and sustainability for all stakeholders in the oil and gas sector. He emphasized the need for better strategic partnership and continuous collaboration between DPR and LUPAN.

The President of LUPAN, Alhaji Mustapha Adio said that the association will continue to partner with DPR for the development of lubricant market in Nigeria.

He expressed his delight with the positive interventions of DPR in the creation of enabling business environment for its members.
