ABSTRACT
The study assessed the Problem of Petroleum Product Distribution in Nigeria. As such, the research questions that guided this study are: What are the constraints militating against Nigeria’s state owned refineries and petrochemical plants as well as affiliated regulatory agencies in Petroleum product distribution? What are the problems associated with the distribution of petroleum product in the downstream sector? 120 respondents were selected using the random sampling technique to select 50 independent petroleum product marketers, 50 staff from PPMC and 20 staff from NNPC and 20 staff from NNPC. The mean (X) was used to analyze the data while chi-square was used to test the hypotheses. The analysis shows that the frequent pipeline vandalization, poor maintenance of petroleum infrastructure, as well as Inefficiency and Corruption of government officials and under-utilization of Refineries by NNPC are the main constraint militating against Nigeria’s state-owned refineries and petrochemicals plants as well as affiliated regulatory agencies in petroleum product distribution. Diversion of petroleum products, hoarding of petroleum products, the use of old tankers that are in a poor state of operation and poor state of road in Nigeria, sabotage, crude oil and petroleum product bunkering, petroleum product adulterations are some of the challenges militating against petroleum product distribution from the side of major and independent marketers of petroleum product. As such, it was recommended that the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) should diversify its export/output baskets through adequate downstream activities. This will enhance self-sufficient in petroleum products and economic growth. Nigeria’s fuel shortages can never be solved by importing more fuel. Importing fuel is a temporary (short term) solution. Building more refineries in Nigeria to meet our domestic consumption and possibly export to neighboring countries; undoubtedly is a sure solution to Nigeria’s perennial fuel shortages.
