Kaduna, Warri, Port Harcourt To Help Stabilise Fuel Supply

The Kaduna, Port Harcourt and Warri refineries now produce over 6.76 million litres of petrol daily, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) reports.

Ohi Alegbe, NNPC’s group general manager, group public affairs division, issued a statement with this information on Tuesday in Abuja.
According to the statement, the three refineries had been projected to increase combined production to over 10 million litres per day by the end of January.
A breakdown indicates that the Port Harcourt refinery, which was re-streamed a week earlier, produces about 4.09 million litres, while Kaduna yields 1.29 million litres.
Warri refinery, which was re-streamed on Sunday, produces 1.38 million litres, the statement reports.
Reportedly, this volume of petrol from the refineries would help stabilise supply and distribution in the country.
