LPG Depots in Apapa:
In Apapa, we have the Nigerian Pipelines & Storage Company with about 5000MT storage capacity. It is a state-owned company ( Nigeria Petroleum Marketing Company)and is located at Marine Beach, which can be located from Mobil road just close to Ijora.
We also have NAVGAS depot, privately owned by Nidogas and Vitol. the capacity is about 11,000MT. It is located at Creek road, in the heart of Apapa. It is not as easily accessible as the NPSC.
Also in Apapa, is the NIPCO depot, which is also a privately owned depot owned by independent petroleum marketers in Nigeria. It is a 9000MT depot. It is located close to the Naval Dockyard on the opposite side of the road from NPSC. Accessibility can be difficult depending on the activities of white product depots which are situated very close to the depot. The access to the depot is not very good.
LPG depots in Ijegun
Ijegun is very close to Satellite Town, after Festac Town. So for those who have their LPG Bottling plants around that axis, Ijegun would be very good. Rainoil has an 8000MT capacity LPG depot situated here which has been in operations since 2020.
Another depot is being constructed at Ijegun, more details shall be provided as it unfolds.
LPG depot at Kirikiri.
TechnoOil has an 8000 MT capacity LPG storage depot which started operations in 2020. This depot can be accessed by going through Apapa or going through Mile 2. Access to the depot is quite tricky and may not be one of the first choices for loading, for truck owners.
