Port Harcourt Refinery to Resume Production of Petrol this week
Hope for Nigeria’s less-dependent on imported petroleum products has been renewed as the Port Harcourt Refinery will this week resume full production of petrol, when Chrome Oil Services Limited would have completed the rehabilitation of Area 3, where petrol, Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and other lighter products are produced.
The 210,000 barrels per day capacity refinery had earlier started preliminary production with Unit 1 producing largely Dual Purpose Kerosene (DPK) and Automotive Gas (AGO), otherwise known as diesel.
The Chairman of the Chrome Group and multi-billionaire business mogul, Sir Emeka Offor, told journalists at the weekend that since 2000 when Chrome Consortium successfully completed the Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) of Port Harcourt Refinery, his company had remained in the refinery to provide massive maintenance services because of the satisfactory completion of the TAM.
Offor stated that his company was the lead partner in the consortium that carried out the TAM, which was certified by Shell Manufacturing Services, an international company that supervises TAM in refineries.
