Asharami Synergy, a Sahara Group Down­stream Company, has reiterated its commit­ment to promoting the adoption of cleaner fuels in the sector, working in collaboration with regulatory authorities and deliv­ering exceptional fuel solutions responsibly.

Foluso Sobanjo Managing Di­rector, at the Asharami Synergy 2024 Customer Forum, said the company remained dedicated to spearheading the quest for environmental sustainability in Nigeria’s downstream operations across the sector’s value chain.

He told the company’s custom­ers that Asharami was delighted to serve as their preferred energy solutions provider, adding that Asharami had since commenced the supply of low sulphur fuels in line with the Afri-5 specifications prescribed by African Refiners and Distributors Association (ARDA) and in compliance with the provision of the Petroleum In­dustry Act (PIA) 2021 which limits the sulphur content in Gasoil/Die­sel to 50ppm (parts per million).

“Given our track record of transparency, integrity, and ser­vice excellence in the sector, we are using this forum to keep our esteemed customers abreast of new developments in the sector, especially the switch to the AFRI-5 low-sulphur specification which makes diesel appear lighter. This does not reduce the quality or performance of the product as all parameters remain the same as specifiedbytheStandardsOrgani­zation of Nigeria (SON),” he said.

Engr. Oluwakayode Oyegoke, Head, Distribution System Stor­age Infrastructure, Lagos SW, Nigeria Midstream and Down­stream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA), while speaking at the forum, reassured the public that the new directive would help reduce pollution and promote the well-being of Nige­rians.

He stated: “The NMDPRA would like to commend Ashara­miSynergyforprovidingthisplat­form to help create more aware­ness and educate the buying public about the new fuel specifi­cations. The Authority would also like to assure all stakeholders that the products in circulation meet all requirements for safety, quality, and environmental sustainabili­ty. The industry is evolving, and we have to move with the world towards cleaner energy. Economi­cally, the transition to low-Sulphur fuels can attract investment, cre­ate jobs, and reduce the country’s carbon footprint.”

Adeoti Onabolu, Chief Mar­keting Officer, Asharami Syner­gy, commended the company’s customers for their patronage, stating, “serving you is a privilege weholddear, andyoursatisfaction is the ultimate success factor and motivation for us to diligently and unceasingly work towards bringing energy to your lives and businesses responsibly.”
