3 of Nigeria's 4 Refinneries Back Up and Working Years After... Warri and PH alone Produces 8.5 Million Barrels of Crude Daily!

Three of Nigeria's four refineries have now been restreamed and the NNPC in a statement signed by its Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mr. Ohi Alegbe, stated that the Port Harcourt and Warri refineries have been successfully re-streamed after a nine-month phased rehabilitation exercise conducted by its in-house engineers and technicians. According to him, the Port Harcourt refinery is projected to boost the nation’s local refining capacity with a product yield of five million litres of petrol per day while Warri refinery would contribute 3.5 million litres of petrol to local refining capacity. He stated that both plants have commenced preliminary production of petroleum products after successful test-runs, noting that while Port Harcourt Refineries Company, PHRC, is ramping up its operation to about 60 percent of its 210,000 barrels per day (bpd) name plate capacity, Warri refineries and Petrochemical Company, WRPC, production is projected to hit 80 per cent of its installed 125,000 bpd capacity. Alegbe also added that, the NNPC had to adopt the phased rehabilitation strategy after the Original Refinery Builders, ORB, who were initially contacted for the project came up with unfavourable terms.
