Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has said it will begin full rehabilitation of the Port Harcourt, Warri and Kaduna refineries in January 2020. NNPC group managing director Mallam Mele Kolo Kyari announced the project on 21 September during a visit to the Port Harcourt Refinery Company, saying timely delivery was a priority. A number of rehabilitation projects have been proposed for Nigeria’s refineries but failed to materialise, while turnaround maintenance on the plants has been neglected and Nigeria is obliged to import most of its fuel.
