A spokesperson for the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has disclosed that the country’s four refineries will resume production next month.
Speaking to AFP, Ohi Alegbe said; “The refineries at Warri, Port Harcourt and Kaduna will resume next month after a successful turn-around-maintenance (overhaul) of their facilities.”
“The turn-around-maintenance has been on for some time. We did not just want to make any noise about it. The refineries will start production as soon as they have delivery of crude oil for refining.”
The NNPC has four refineries, which are; two in Port Harcourt in the south, one in northern Kaduna and another in southern Warri, with a combined installed capacity of 445,000 barrels per day.
A network of pipelines and depots located throughout the country link these refineries.
