Port Harcourt refinery almost 90% completed – Senate Committee

The Chairman of the Senate adhoc committee investigating Turnaround Maintenance of Nigeria’s Refineries, Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, has announced that the Port Harcourt refinery is almost 90% completed and will be operational before the end of the year.

Despite missing the February 2024 deadline set for the commencement of operations, Senator Ubah expressed confidence in the progress made at the refinery during the committee’s visit to Governor Similanayi Fubara of Rivers State at the Government House in Port Harcourt.

The committee’s visit aimed to assess the level of preparedness of both the old and new Port Harcourt refineries to recommence operations and ensure compliance with contract specifications.

Earlier, Governor Fubara highlighted the state government’s efforts in line with the federal government’s policies to improve the lives of Nigerians, including infrastructure development such as the construction of the Woji-Aleto-Alesa-Refinery Road.

The impending revival of the Port Harcourt refinery holds promise for increased local availability of petroleum products, reduced importation, economic growth, and enhanced revenue generation, benefiting both the Federal Government and Rivers State.
