NNPC To Shut Down Three Refineries For Comprehensive Rehabilitation by nwakibie3(m): 4:52pm On Sep 13
By Chineme Okafor and Nnenna Akuma in Abuja

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has disclosed that it will shortly close down three of its refineries in Kaduna, Warri and Port Harcourt for a comprehensive rehabilitation aimed at bringing them back to their nameplate production capacities.

NNPC’s Group Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru, told reporters on Wednesday in Abuja that the shutdown of the refineries would allow the corporation to undertake their rehabilitation in ways that are different from what had been done in the past.

He noted that the refineries would come back on stream as new facilities when it concludes the rehabilitation project ahead of the country’s plan to exit petroleum products importation in 2019.

Speaking on the sidelines of the inaugural Nigerian Pipeline Security Conference and Exhibition organised by the Pipeline Association of Nigeria (PLAN), Baru said: “As you know, it is being the perception of the public that the repairs of the refineries are never done thoroughly. So this time, our intention is to shut down the refineries when we are ready, and then fully bring them back to what they should be as new refineries.”

He further explained: “Obviously, it is going to be a complex procedure and as such, we have to break down the various work packages to ensure that all the various workforces have sufficient focus, and if you notice the time that we inaugurated (eight committees on the refineries rehabilitation), the work streams are composed of the general managers and executive directors level, and they will be having a day-to-day look at it, while the steering committee is at my level and that of the chief operating officers all looking at the problems the workstations have and they will proffer solutions immediately.”

Details later…

"As you know, it is being the perception of the public that the repairs of the refineries are never done thoroughly. So this time, our intention is to shut down the refineries when we are ready, and then fully bring them back to what they should be as new refineries" - We see undecided

- The threat is now real.
- IPOB (mis) action is in the pipeline
- Likely concession of these misfiring assets to follow after the remodel
+100% importation of PMS & Diesel is in the offing
+ Fuel prices would go up again
+ Niger Delta militants would not be able to attack any more
+ Siphoning of crude would be curtailed
+ Nigerian Navy to begin : Operation Wey Dem in the creeks and rivers in SE grin
+ Dollar sales to be reduced by CBN
+ Naira to depreciate further

Useless government sad sad sad

Our refineries go out on "servicing/maintenance" more than the number of times they work. Even when they work, they don't work at full capacity. Someone whose car spends more time in the mechanic workshop than on the road will finally get tired of the car, guess FG is never yet tired of these refineries angry

I don't think bringing expatriates to help manage these refineries would be a bad idea. I say this because so far it has shown that we tend to lack the technical know how to manage them. Just my thoughts

To be shut down for comprehensive looting.

These are refineries they told us would come online and work optimally, how much have they spent on these refineries already? What are they rehabilitating?

Fraud! Was this not the first thing St. Buhari and Ibe Kachikwu did when this administration came onboard? How many times will they do turn around maintenance? After all the promises by St. Buhari to fix all the refineries and stop fuel importation, na here we still dey.

I pity those who still believe this government.
