Port Harcourt Refinery To Complete Test Run This Month

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Ltd announced that it will finish test runs at the Port Harcourt refinery this month, marking a significant milestone in the effort to restart operations after the plant’s five-year closure.

“Testing will conclude shortly, ensuring the refinery’s efficient operation. That phase will be completed this month,” NNPC spokesperson Femi Soneye said to Reuters.

Undergoing upgrades, the refinery will commence operations by handling 60,000 barrels per day initially, with NNPC aiming to reach its full capacity of 210,000 barrels per day by the end of this year.

Port Harcourt represents one of Nigeria’s state-owned refineries that have remained inactive for years. However, the government is actively working to revitalize these refineries to reduce the nation’s dependency on imported refined products.
