Refineries producing 6.76 million litres of petrol – NNPC

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation on Tuesday announced that the nation’s three refineries in Kaduna, Port Harcourt and Warri had attained a combined daily production capacity of over 6.76 million litres of petrol.

The corporation said in a statement by its Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Ohi Alegbe, that petrol production was projected to increase to over 10 million litres per day by the end of this month.

The NNPC gave a breakdown of the petrol yield from the various plants, with the Port Harcourt refinery, which was re-streamed a week earlier, producing 4.09 million litres; the Kaduna refinery, contributing 1.29 million litres; and the Warri refinery, which was re-streamed on Sunday, producing 1.38 million litres.

“The PMS volumes from the refineries, which are currently operating at an appreciable percentage of their nameplate capacities, will help stabilise the fuel supply and distribution situation in the country,” the corporation said.
