‘Nigeria’s refineries produce 10.2m litres daily

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has said Kaduna, Warri and Port Harcourt refineries produce a total of 10.23 million litres of premium motor spirit (petrol) per day from about eight million litres.

The acting spokesperson of the corporation, Tumini Green, in a statement, said the Group Executive Director, Refining and Petrochemicals (NNPC), Anthony Ogbuigwe, made this known yesterday in Abuja.

He said the Kaduna Refinery operates at 65 per cent, Warri Refinery at 63 per cent and Port Harcourt Refinery 66 per cent of their installed capacities.

Green said the refineries also process 5.53 million litres of dual purpose kerosene daily and 8.016 million litres of automotive gas oil (diesel) daily.

According to the statement, Ogbuigwe said: “I can tell you with every sense of responsibility that contrary to the news making the round, all our refineries are doing very well. The major components and various units of Fluid Catalytic Cracking Units, (FCCU), Crude Distillation Unit (VDU) and Vacuum Distillation Unit (DDU) of all the refineries are working well. In fact, these refineries have been running consistently for over three months.”

He explained that the stability in supply of petroleum products is attributed to the performance of the refineries, adding that the scheduled turn around maintenance (TAM) of the refineries is on course.

He said the Port Harcourt Refinery has taken delivery of some of the components for its rehabilitation. “I can tell you that five shipments for the TAM of Port Harcourt Refining and Petrochemical Company have arrived,” he added.

He decried the incessant pipeline vandalism and crude oil theft, stressing that the menace is a threat to the nation’s oil and gas industry.

He called on stakeholders in the industry and Nigerians to team up with the NNPC to find a lasting solution to the menace to enable the refineries to run without shutting.

The Federal Government allocates 445,000 barrels of crude daily to the three refineries.

    Yes it is interesting that the country at this time is able to produce such quantities of refined product without not going to get the product from another country while the country,s refinery be left out empty.
    It is a glory from the current president hence such thing have not been going on such and also a blessing to the country.

    Really the total product of the ago,dpk and the pms are all havin their sets of reasonable quantities from each of the designated refined products.
    It is easy to find out that issues of petroleum scarcity shall reduce while the country shall more economical to the citizen,that is why i am saying more grease to the elbow of the current president Mr good luck Jonathan.
    But then my question is how many [quantity]shall be for export and how many shall be for use within the country.
