Project Aquila In Your Business Interest

The Petroleum Equalisation Fund (Management) Board introduced ‘Project Aquila’, an innovative e-business solution, to enhance service delivery to our stakeholders. It is an efficient system of managing products distribution and payment of Marketers’ claims. It confirms the loading and delivery of petroleum products at the depots. It was initiated to check leakages, enthrone transparency and due process while transforming the Board’s operations. Aquila is not a tracking device to monitor movement of trucks or goods in transit.

Aquila, a Latin name for Eagle was chosen in view of the bird’s strength, speed and accuracy.
