Al Noor Petroleum (N3) is an oil marketing and distribution company. We market our products under “N3” brand, a registered trade mark. We import and also purchase petroleum products from local refineries and sell to our customers through our retail outlets and directly to end users. The petroleum products are transported in the country through our dedicated fleet and also through the cross-country pipeline systems.
The most debated subject in the country for over decades is energy it may be country politics or business forums. Energy has driven the advancement since the start of human life. Petroleum products take the lead in energy sector, we all need it, is so important that the prices of most common consumer products – motor gasoline and high-speed diesel are controlled by the government. Energy in the form of oil has connected the world in an efficient way, allow us to drive on roads, fly in a plane and usage of ships and it is a source of electrical power and drive many industries.
For years there were only three oil companies in the country which was an oligopolistic condition of oil marketing and distribution industry in Pakistan, relatively less competition. In late 90’s government allowed new oil marketing companies (OMC) to start business in the country and few companies entered in the market in ten years period. But in year 20016 -17 large number of OMC licenses were issued by the regulator (OGRA). With the new OMCs coming up there is a healthy competition which result good service to the customers, more petrol pumps will be available in the country and there will be no more long waiting time for refueling your vehicles.
It is historical facts that most of the new OMCs developed their retail outlets in the country having only one or two bulk oil storages. Al Noor petroleum limited (ANPPL) is the 1st OMC among the new licensees who is strictly following the regulatory requirements and the vision that is construction of bulk oil storage in the country followed by the retail developments. ANPPL started simultaneous development of oil storage depots across the country and four large storage depot and terminals are already constructed at various locations in the country, more to follow. Our retail development is also progressing on fast track.
We strive for the fastest growth in oil storage depot and terminal construction and retail network in the country.
Over a decade motor gasoline grew by manifolds and high-speed diesel also grew reasonably. The growth will continue as the economy of the country is growing and many vehicles are entering on the roads. Over 200,000 cars, pickups, trucks, jeeps and over 1.5 million motor cycles are added in the country every year which is driving the motor gasoline sale high. The population growth and increase in buying power is also playing a big role in the growth of petroleum products in the country.
While ANPPL has been guided by a focus on sustainability, I would like the company to keep a closer look at our mission, vision and values to help drive our efforts.
With continuous learning, engaging our employees and stake holders and building on our experience we can and are committed to provide quality products and services to our customers.

In spite of various challenges and hurdles the company have developed about 30,000 MT volumetric oil storages in the country and as per OGRA rules based on storage capacity the company is entitle to develop over 300 retail out lets in the country. As we all know the regulator have delayed/ stalled the approval processes for over a year and half now due various ongoing investigations, court cases etc., which is a big challenge to whole industry and that has serious affected our progress and retail network development. But we hope Insha Allah soon we will overcome these issues.
The company has constructed and technically commissioned Mehmoodkot terminal, Shikarpur terminal, Sahiwal depot and Daulatpur depot. And also constructed and laid down products receipt pipelines connected with PAPCO/ PARCO cross country pipeline systems.
We are trying our best, left no stone unturned, to get the approval of enhancement of retail outlets in Sindh, marketing permission in Punjab and extension/ confirmation of license as soon as possible. Alhamodolillah, our operation in Sindh is in good hands and has achieved the sales targets.
I want to assure you that our company is at good position in the industry, Insha Allah as soon as we will get the pending approvals we will speed up the retail net-work development.
I would like to thank you for your dedication, commitment and hard work during year 2021 and am looking forward to a better 2022.
