Nigeria Records N7trn Revenue From Crude Oil Exports

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), has clearly disclosed the condition for reopening of the Warri refinery.

According to the Spokesperson for the NNPC, Ohi Alegbe, the Warri refinery has not been reopened after last week’s temporary closure because crude oil is still being loaded into it.

He further disclosed that the refinery would only restart when it had enough crude to keep it going for at least 25 days.

“Once we have supplied sufficient crude … we can restart the production process,” Alegbe said.

He added that crude was being supplied to the refinery in batches carried by marine vessels, because most of the pipelines supplying it had been compromised by vandalism.

  1. What do the people who blamed the closure on the minister of petroleum’s corruption and mismanagement say now? Yet another empty accusation goes up in smoke!
