Nigeria To Commission Two More Refineries, None Under Construction – DPR
Latest update from the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), Nigeria’s oil and gas industry regulator, has listed the 7,000bpd OPAC refinery in Kwale, Delta State as Nigeria’s likely third functioning, privately-run refinery.
The Department said the refinery has been completed and waiting commissioning. The 7,000 barrels per-stream-a-day capacity OPAC Refinery is among the few modular refineries approved by President Muhammadu Buhari, as part of the government’s strategy to gradually end Nigeria’s dependence on foreign refiners for petroleum products.
Under construction are two others: The 500,000bpd Dangote refinery, which is 71% completed, the DPR‘s report update, as well as the 6,000bpd Edo Refinery, said to be almost completed. Contrary to popular records in the media, referring to the Dangote Refinery as one with a 650,000bpd capacity, the DPR referred to it as a 500,000BPD facility.
