As part of concerted effort to boost the supply Premium Motor Spirit, PMS also known as fuel to end users in the country, Techno Oil is set to unveil 20 new mega filling stations across the country.
Aside from making fuel available to the general public, Head of Strategy Department of the company, Mr. Ken Abazie at the weekend in Lagos said the mega stations would also provide no fewer than 2000 new jobs for Nigerians.
He added that the new retail outlets would go a long way in assisting the renewed drive of the Federal Government to transform the economy and create employment for the teeming populace.
According to him, Lagos would have the lion share of the number of outlets because of its position as the nation's economic hub followed by Abuja. Other cities include Ibadan, Enugu, Onitsha, Port Harcourt among others.
He explained that each of the stations has a capacity to dispense over 30,000 litres of petroleum products daily, using automated pumping facilities adding that most of the stations would not only dispense white products but would also be a one-stop shop for cooking gas refilling, lubricants, LPG cylinders and stoves.
"The new mega stations are strategically located across the different geo-political zones of Nigeria and are positioned to deliver premium value to our esteemed customers. This development would also boost the leadership position of Techno Oil in the downstream sector in line with its vision of our company "to be the Future Energy".
"The filling stations would be a veritable channel for the distribution of Techno Oil range of lubricants nationwide.
The company's lubricants, known for its 'quality oil & quality performance' would be sold to customers at the new stations saving them the risk of purchasing low quality or adulterated lubricants on the road side.
"In this era whereby Nigeria had been turned into a dumping ground for engine oils and local lubricants blending plants are closing shop, motorist must beware of the brand of lubricants they use as their cars may be at the verge of break down.
"The unveiling of the mega stations is coming barely two weeks after the Federal Government commended Techno Oil for setting the pace in popularising the use of cooking gas in Nigerian homes.
