Plans are underway to achieve this target, with the Kaduna Refinery also slated to be operational before the end of next year.

Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Petroleum (Downstream), has announced that both the Port Harcourt and Warri refineries are expected to be fully operational by the end of 2024.

Plans are underway to achieve this target, with the Kaduna Refinery also slated to be operational before the end of next year.

These efforts, combined with the expected supply from the 650,000 barrels per day Dangote Refinery, are aimed at enabling Nigeria to meet its domestic fuel demand.

Senator Ubah further called on the federal government and other stakeholders to collaborate in establishing modular refineries to expand the nation’s domestic crude oil refining capacity.

He said: “My mandate is to ensure that the refineries in Nigeria are up and functional. By my involvement, before the end of this year, two refineries will be up and running.

“Also, before the end of next year, the Kaduna refinery will come on stream. Also, the production of jet oil, and tolubricant will be produced by mid-next year.

“I can assure Nigerians that I will tirelessly pursue and ensure that these refineries are up and running before the end of the year. We have set up a technical team to visit the refineries every two weeks in order to meet the set target.”
