NNPCL To Complete Warri Refinery Q1

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited says the mechanical completion of the Warri Refining and Petrochemical Company is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of this year.

WRPC, located in Warri, Delta State and established in 1978, is one of Nigeria’s three refineries under the management of NNPCL.

The other two include the Port Harcourt Refining Company in Rivers State, and the Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company in Kaduna State. Rehabilitation work is also ongoing at both facilities.

The Warri refinery is a complex conversion refinery with a capacity to refine 125,000 barrels of crude oil per day. The facility includes a petrochemical plant producing polypropylene and carbon black.

It supplies petroleum products to southern and south-western Nigeria but is not producing refined products currently due to the rehabilitation of the facility by the Federal Government.

However, in a brief response to an enquiry by newsmen with regards to when the plant would be mechanically completed, the Chief Corporate Communications Officer, NNPCL, Olufemi Soneye, said that the target was to have it sorted in the first quarter of this year.
