The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) registered 110 filling stations on its recently-introduced e-station Downstream Remote Monitoring System (DRMS) portal in Taraba.
It is also aimed at determining and establishing daily availability and consumption rate of petroleum products in the country.
The controller announced the sealing of some filling stations in the state for violation of operational code, including operating without licence, over pricing, under-dispensing, redundancy and inactivity.
He warned that the department would no longer condone any infraction by the marketers.
Bature also cautioned some oil and gas marketers against smuggling petroleum products to the neighbouring countries and urged them to adhere strictly to the rules of the business.
“We will continue to provide robust oversight for the safety of operations in the industry in line with global best practices to ensure business sustainability,” he said. (NAN)
