Waltersmith Launches 5,000-Bpd Capacity Modular Refinery In September

Waltersmith Petroman Oil Ltd., a Nigerian independent producer, will open a 5,000-barrel a day capacity modular refinery in September in the country.

Nigeria is Africa’s top crude oil producer but it imports all of its refined-product needs.
Speaking at a webinar yesterday, the company chief executive officer, Chikezie Nwosu, said Waltersmith Petroman Oil Ltd is Nigeria’s first producer from marginal fields, and plans to increase output to 30,000 barrels a day in two years.

An earlier plan to commission the refinery, built by Houston-based VFuels, in May was hampered by the coronavirus pandemic, Nwosu said.
