Federal Government Begins Rehabilitation Of Port Harcourt Refineries

The Federal Government has kick-started the rehabilitation of Port Harcourt refineries. Speaking yesterday at the inauguration ceremony in Port Harcourt, Dr Maikanti Baru, Group Managing Director of NNPC, said the move was part of government’s effort to achieve 90 per cent local refining capacity. The first refinery in Port Harcourt was commissioned in 1965 to process 60,000 barrels of oil per stream day (bpsd), and the new plant in 1989, with capacity of 150,000 bpsd.

The refineries have a combined capacity of 210,000 barrels per stream day, making it the “biggest oil refining company in Nigeria”. Baru said the rehabilitation would be in two phases, adding that both ENI and the original builders would participate in the process.

“We appreciate the commitment of the managers of the Port Harcourt Refineries because you know how much importance NNPC attaches to the revamping of the refineries to make impact and boost local refining.
“NNPC is committed to seeing they come back on stream,” he said.
He said that refineries had not undergone any Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) since 2000.
“This project is in phases. This refinery has not done TAM since 2000, so, in this particular phase, we are essentially going to open up every equipment and also review every flow system that is here.

“We also look at all the flushes, the transmissions; essentially, this is on thorough inspection and where infringement is minimal, it will be fixed and we close back the system,” he said.
