Economic Regulation & Planning Directorate
This is done by effectively planning the importation of petroleum products, ensuring the equitable distribution of products, and regularly monitoring of the stocks of petroleum products nationwide. It also ensures that petroleum products meant for re-exportation are indeed re-exported to avoid dumping of such products into the country.
The Directorate also conducts a periodic review of the Prescribed Petroleum Pricing Formula, in consultation with Petroleum Service Providers and all relevant stakeholders, and publishes the prices in the gazette.
It ensures that the prescribed petroleum pricing formula achieves the objective of ensuring full cost recovery of investment, generation of revenue for government and uniformity of prices of petroleum service providers throughout the country.
