The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC Ltd.) has clarified that the fire incident at a tank farm in Marine Beach, Apapa, Lagos, was at a Depot belonging to HOGL Energy Ltd. (Honeywell Depot) and not an NNPC Retail Ltd. facility, as circulated by early responders.

Olufemi Soneye, Chief Corporate Communications Officer, NNPC Ltd, Abuja, in a statement on Friday, added that “the fire, which has since been extinguished, was as a result of petroleum products spillage within the perimeter of the tank farm.”
