DPR begins digitalisation of oil marketers licensing process


The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) last week launched its online license processing platform to checkmate illegal marketers responsible for diverting petroleum products and operating without genuine licenses, The Nation reports.

At a seminar organised for interaction and education of all independent petroleum marketers on online license processing in Kaduna, the Department said transiting from analogue license processing to digital is necessary, in order for petroleum marketers to do their businesses with ease.

Speaking to reporters shortly after the event, the DPR Northwest Zonal Operations Controller, Alhaji Isa Tafida said with the introduction of online lincense processing, it will be easier for domestic investors to come in and do their business, and “whatever requirements is needed to be obtained for your organisation is there online.”
