Lagos Records First Self-Dispensing Filling Station

Lagos records its first self-dispensing filling station owned by Pinnacle Oil and Gas Limited.

Lagosians may no  longer need the services of petrol station attendants to buy fuel, as a 24-hour, self-dispensing filling station debuts. The station, owned by Pinnacle Oil and Gas Limited, has 28 nozzles, with each dispensing pump having POS receipts.

Speaking at the commissioning, the Chief Executive Officer of Pinnacle, Mr. Peter Mbah, said the company has zero tolerance for disparity. He said: “We have zero tolerance for disparity. If you are buying 10 litres of fuel, you are sure of it. You are not going to get anything less. This means that a customer should be able to generate receipts from the dispensing pumps, as the receipts will not be hand-written.

“We intend to offer excellence services to the public. We intend to offer 24-hour fuel to the public. We are tired of having fuel scarcity every now and then. We felt that with 28 nozzles and with the 24-hour service we are offering, 365 days in the year, we are always going to have fuel.

“The strategic position we are in as depot owners we are able to provide services constantly to customers. Essentially, we are driven by excellence. That is why we did a petrol station of this size with all the key features in any modern station. You are able to attend to yourself without the help of a third party. You are not going to buy more than the regulated price.”

Mbah explained that Pinnacle has 10 other stations, and intends to open more in all states of the federation. “This is not our first station. We have stations in other parts of the country. However, this is our first station in Lagos. We have 10 stations in all and hope to be in all the states of the federation. For now, we have in all the states in the South-East.

“Beyond being a priority customer of NNPC, which ensures we get regular supply, we also have our depot from where we bring in products. This will certainly guarantee that we have products 365 days. Presently, we have our depot in Warri. We are doing another one in Lagos,” he said.

He also said that another mega station is being built along the Apapa – Oshodi Expressway.
