Mobil Oil Nigeria Returns to Aviation Fuel Business

By Dipo Olowookere

After staying away from the aviation fuel business, one of the leading oil firms in the country, 11 Plc (formerly Mobil Oil Nigeria) has re-entered into the market.

The company is not into the sale and marketing of aviation jet fuel (ATK) at the Murtala Mohamed International Airport and General Aviation Terminal (GAT — Domestic).

It was disclosed that Mobil Oil is returning into the venture as a result of the partnership it entered into with Air BP.

Mobil Oil’s aviation business, which has been inactive for the past five years, is being revitalized in the wake of the construction of a new 20 million litre aviation jet fuel (ATK) tank and the laying of new ATK pipelines linking the company’s facility at Apapa with the Apapa Jetty.

Speaking on the development, MD/CEO of 11 Plc, Mr Adetunji Oyebanji, said, “We are delighted with the relaunch and our collaboration with Air BP.

“Air BP is one of the world’s largest suppliers of aviation fuel products and services. We are leveraging their innovative technical support and risk management expertise to provide best-in-class aviation fuel services to airline customers.”

In a statement signed the firm’s Head of Public & Government Affairs, Ayomike Amaju, Mobil Oil, under its new management, continues to take huge strides in the Nigerian oil and gas downstream sector in keeping with its strategic investment drive geared toward repositioning for maximum output and improving its growth and earning potentials.
