THE Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, on Tuesday, January 5, announced that the nation’s three refineries in Kaduna, Port Harcourt and Warri, had attained a combined daily production capacity of more than 6.76 million litres of petrol. A statement signed by Ohi Alegbe, group general manager, Group Public Affairs Division, NNPC, said that petrol production was projected to increase to more than 10 million litres per day by the end of this month.
A breakdown of the petrol yield from the various plants showed that the Port Harcourt refinery, which was re-streamed a week earlier, produced 4.09 million litres; the Kaduna refinery, contributed 1.29 million litres; and the Warri refinery, which was re-streamed on Sunday, produced 1.38 million litres.
The PMS volumes from the refineries, which are currently operating at an appreciable percentage of their installed capacities will help stabilise the fuel supply and distribution situation in the country, NNPC said.
