Laboratory Analysis and Pipeline Products Marketing Company (PPMC) Depot Operations

ABSTRACT
This research work was carried out to evaluate the laboratory analysis of pipeline products marketing company (PPMC) depot operations. 
In the course of the research many scholarly articles on the subject matter were reviewed from which the researcher got lot information concerning the topic at hand. Thus making the research work a reliable source of information as far as facts about petroleum products marketing company (PPMC) is concerned.
The Pipeline Inspectorate is charged with the responsibility of monitoring the operations of the Petroleum/Petrochemical processing plants and the activities of the Petroleum products Marketing Companies to ensure they operate in accordance with requirements of the Petroleum Regulations. Petroleum Products manufactured from the refineries in Kaduna, Warri, and Port Harcourt are distributed through a network of Pipelines to Depots located strategically all over Nigeria. Imported products from offshore operations arrangement are received at the Apapa, Atlas Cove, Warri, and Port Harcourt Jetties. Petroleum Products are evacuated from the depots by road tankers to various Petrol Stations and other retail Outlets.
This research work therefore presents an analysis on depot operations which includes amongst others; methods and modes of measurement of Petroleum Products, the role of the petroleum Inspectorate in ensuring that products are manufactured to specification standard, products accountability at the processing plants, bulk storage depots and retail outlets, and products distribution to consumers on specification.
