Process of Bridging Claims

 

The bridging scheme was originally introduced as a temporary measure during turn-around maintenance (TAM) wherein government sought to encourage and support marketers in transporting petroleum products nationwide.

Although bridging was meant to be a temporary solution until the refineries were producing back at full capacity, the state of the refineries has worsened over the years.

In addition, pipeline vandalisations by militants and economic saboteurs have been on the increase, to the point where trucks have become the major source of distributing petroleum products in recent times.

The initial projection was to have a maximum of 10% of total petroleum products bridged while the remaining portion will be pumped through the pipelines. However, trend analysis indicate that bridging of products have consistently increased over the years to about 40%.

There is also a noticeable trend whereby products are bridged from Lagos to the South East and South-South areas of the country to address products unavailability from the refineries in Port Harcourt and Warri.
