Following years of low output, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation announced on Saturday night that the nation’s refineries located in Port Harcourt, Warri and Kaduna will refine crude oil at optimum capacity by 2022.
NNPC’s Group Managing Director, Mele Kyari, who disclosed this during a facilities tour of the Port-Harcourt Refining and Petrochemical Company, stated that full rehabilitation of the plants would commence January, 2020.
Kyari said making the refineries to operate at optimal capacities was a mandate that NNPC as a corporation would leave no stone unturned to actualise, adding that timely delivery of the asset was a priority.
He said, “We will stick to time, we will deliver this project by 2022. We will commence actual rehabilitation work in January. We will do everything possible between October and December to close out all necessary conditions for us to deliver on that project.
