Nigeria refineries to resume operations

maxresdefault (1)Refineries in Nigeria will resume refining crude oil for local consumption within this month to check the current fuel scarcity, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has said.


Two of the refineries, Port Harcourt and Kaduna, were shut simultaneously after the Bonny-Okrika and Escravos-Warri crude supply lines to Port Harcourt Kaduna refineries, respectively suffered breaches.

But speaking to reporters after inspecting some petrol stations in Abuja recently, the Group Executive Director/ Chief Operating Officer (COO), NNPC (Downstream), Mr. Henry Ikem Obih, said all the refineries were at various stages of resumption.

Obih also said the NNPC had taken delivery of four vessels of refined petrol that are at various stages of distribution across the country.

“We are working extremely hard to ensure that we eliminate the queues. What we have seen today is encouraging but we are still not there. We will be there when you go into a couple of filling stations and you are able to buy fuel and drive away,” he said.

The inspection by the COO covered major and independent retail outlets within the centre of Abuja. At A.Y.M Shafa located at Apo, Gudu Market, the team queried the station for not discharging the product from the truck.
