The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has lifted the sanction it imposed on Lubcon from supplying aviation fuel to domestic and foreign airlines at airports in Nigeria with immediate effect.
In a letter to Lubcon signed by the Director of Air-worthiness Standards Engr. Benedict Adeyileka on behalf of the Director General of NCAA said the suspension was lifted as a result of certification of Lubcon’s aviation fuel supply facilities by the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) and Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority(NCAA).
This certification was preceded by verification visits by top officials of the two regulatory agencies which were found satisfactory.
The certification of the LUBCON Aviation Depot has resulted in the facility becoming one of the best in the industry. This is a confirmation of the enviable standards maintained by the organisation.
LUBCON also commended DPR and NCAA for their quality assurances which it said met international specifications.
In its reaction to the lifting of the ban, LUBCON assured all its aviation customers and stakeholders nationwide of its renewed commitment to continue to deliver quality services they have become accustomed to and thanked them for their support and understanding during the period.
LUBCON being the first Oil and Gas Company in Nigeria to be ISO certified in the year 2002 and the winner of the 2015 National Productivity Order of Merit Award of the Federal Government of Nigeria, remains committed to the highest international quality standards which has remained its hallmark.
“Over the years, the organisation has become a key player in the oil and gas sector through the manufacturing, lifting, distribution and sales of petroleum and allied products.
“The company has constantly applied the principles of productivity management in the course of running its operations for continuous improvement.
