The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has given owners of petroleum products retail outlets a December 31 ultimatum to migrate their operations to its Downstream Remote Monitoring System (DRMS).

Mr Sarki Auwalu, Director, DPR, gave the ultimatum during a meeting between the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and other agencies in Lagos yesterday.

Auwalu said: “The DRMS, also known as e-Station, is an inventory and regulatory tool that tracks product level across retail outlets and depots.

“The system also tracks the movement of products from depot to retail outlets. The app was developed in-house by DPR staffers to track products in order to curb cross border smuggling and diversion of products.

“We want every marketer to migrate into this platform and each of them will have their unique ID to monitor their activities.”

He noted that out of the 33,000 retail outlets registered with the DPR, only about 6,700 have migrated to the platform.

Auwalu said any outlet which failed to comply with the directive would have its license withdrawn and would not be allowed to load petroleum products at the depots. (NAN)
