The NNPC, Nigeria’s state owned oil giant has announced that 132 companies had submitted bids for the 2019 crude for refined products programme tagged Direct Sale, Direct Purchase (DSDP).
The bidders, according to a list exclusively obtained include Trafigura and Mercuria, the international trading companies that have featured prominently in the crude for product swap regime but have paid zero taxes to the Nigerian state, neither do they employ Nigerians nor do they have operations anywhere in the country.
Nigeria mostly relies on importation of fuel for local consumption because its refineries are moribund.
Local companies like Oando, Sahara and MRS have over the years developed their operations and capacity through NNPC crude oil programmes, employing thousands and justifying the federal government’s local content scheme.
Traders expect the NNPC to issue contracts to more local companies that have established operations and capacity to deliver their contracts under the DSDP.
NNPC’s Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru during the opening of the bids in Abuja said $2.2 billion had been saved through the introduction of the DSDP in 2016.
