FG To Rehabilitate Kaduna, Port Harcourt, Warri Refineries

As part of measures to reposition the nation’s refineries for optimal performance, the federal government has concluded plans for total rehabilitation of the Port Harcourt, Warri and Kaduna Refineries.

The Public Affairs Manager of the Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company (KRPC), Mr. Ibrahim Idris, disclosed to Channels Television in Kaduna, adding that the complete overhaul will be handled by the original companies that built the refineries.

He said the rehabilitation of the Kaduna Refinery will be handled by Chiyoda Corporation, a Japanese company.

The Port Harcourt refinery will be the first to undergo rehabilitation which is expected to commence by June this year. The overhaul according to the refinery official will be done in phases.

Meanwhile, Mr. Idris has assured passengers travelling for the Easter holiday of adequate supply of petrol.

He, therefore, advised the public not to engage in any panic buying of fuel as the refinery has enough PMS to serve states in the North during and after the celebration.
