A Pillar of Strength
Owned by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, the Trinidad & Tobago National Petroleum Marketing Company Limited (NP) was incorporated in 1972. It was formed with the assets the Government purchased from the then BP Caribbean Ltd – the local marketing arm of the British Petroleum Group.
quality MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The Company’s facilities that are included within the scope of certification are the main storage and distribution facility at Sea Lots, the Crown Point Installation in Tobago, the Pointe-à-Pierre Bond and the Piarco Airport Installation.
NPMC’s operations are conducted according to international laboratory accreditation requirements. We are registered with the Chevron-Texaco General Test Survey Programme and our laboratory is linked still, further across the Atlantic, to the Institute of Petroleum, London. The Trinidad and Tobago Bureau of Standards calibrates measuring and test equipment used in our laboratory. NPMC is also pursuing ISO 17025:2017 Certification for our Laboratory.
When NP acquired the marketing assets of The Trinidad and Tobago Oil Company (Trintoc), the Company also inherited a lubricants blending plant at Sea Lots. Under NP’s ownership, the plant was initially licensed to produce a range of lubricants blended to formulations under the Shell brand name. In 1981, NP launched its own brand of lubricants.
NP is the primary marketer of motor gasolene in Trinidad and Tobago. It is supplied exclusively by Petrotrin, and sold through the 160-odd operating service stations and fishing co-operatives, of which 60 are located on premises owned or leased by NP, and 40 on the property owned or leased by dealers.
NP manufactures a wide range of engine, gear and hydraulic oils by blending base oils with imported additives. NP enjoys about 50 of the local automotive lubricants market.
The hub of NP’s activities takes place at its 22-acre bulk storage facility and Head Office located at the Sea Lots Complex. We also have gantry filling facilities at Pointe-à-Pierre and Tobago, and branch offices at Cocoyea and Piarco.
