Ten Completed Refineries In Nigeria And Their Production Capacity by Great100000: 9:50am On Jun 22
Commercial crude oil production started in Nigeria in 1956 but local crude oil refining did not start until 1965 when the first crude oil refinery was commissioned.

The first set of refineries in Nigeria were government-owned.

However, since 2013, the federal government has been providing private sector players with licenses to build and own petroleum refineries.

The administration of President Buhari introduced the modular refinery initiative to ramp up the nation’s refining capacity and meet local demand.

Below is a list of the completed refineries in Nigeria and their capacity

Edo Refinery and Petro Chemical Company– This project is a wholly owned subsidiary of AIPCC Energy. It operates in two phases with capacities of 1,000 BPSD and 5,000 BPSD and has been commissioned and is fully operational. Work on Phase 2, which will have a capacity of 12,000 BPD, has already begun, with full operations expected to start in 2024.

Duport Midstream– Located in Edo State, this is a 2,500-BPD refinery that was completed in 2022 and started production in 2023.

Walter Smith refinery– The Walter Smith refinery is a 5,000-bpd oil refinery located in Imo State. The refinery started operations in 2020, with plans to expand its capacity to 50,000 bpd in the coming years.

OPAC Refinery, Delta state– This 10,000-bpd modular refinery located in Kwale, Delta state was completed in 2021 as part of the federal government’s effort to improve local crude oil refining.

Niger Delta Petroleum Refinery (Aradel)– The initial 1,000 bbls/day AGO topping plant was commissioned in 2010. Currently, the 3-train, 11,000 bbls/day modular refinery produces Automotive Gas Oil, Dual Purpose Kerosene, Marine Diesel Oil, High-Pour Fuel Oil, and Naphtha.

Old Port-Harcourt refinery– Built and commissioned in 1965 with a refining capacity of 60,000 barrels of oil per day. Then, it cost Shell BP around £12 million to build. The refinery operated above 50% of its design capacity, and throughout the 1990s, it experienced a gradual decline in output.

In March 2021, the federal government awarded the repair of the refinery to Tecnimont SPA- an Italian company that would carry out repair works in phases. In December last year, the Minister of Petroleum Resources, Sen.Keineken Lokpobiri announced the mechanical completion and flare startup of the refinery.

Kaduna refinery– This refinery has a capacity of 110,000 barrels per day (bpd). It was built in 1976 at a cost of $525 million. Like all other government-owned refineries, it has, over time, produced below its capacity. In 2021, the federal government approved a contract for the turnaround maintenance of the refinery at a cost of $586 million

Warri Refinery and Petrochemical Company (WRPC)– The 125,000-bpd capacity WRPC was built and commissioned in 1978 at a cost of around $478 million. The refinery has never achieved full capacity utilization as production has declined steadily except in the early 1990’s, during which there was a brief upswing in production.

In 2021, the federal government awarded the contract for the repair of the decrepit refinery to Saipem SPA at a cost of $897 million.

New Port-Harcourt refinery– In 1985, the federal government commissioned the New Port Harcourt refinery, built at a cost of $850 million. It has the capacity to refine 150,000 barrels of oil daily. The commissioning of the New Port Harcourt refinery increased the total refining capacity of the plants to 210,000 barrels per day.

Recent processing performance has fallen significantly below design capabilities in both refinery throughput and the yield of higher-value products. The refinery has rarely operated above 50% of its design capacity. During the 1990s, it experienced a gradual decline in throughput, resulting in a proportionate increase in the yields of lower-value fuel oil products.

The refinery was part of the $1.5 billion turnaround maintenance awarded by the federal government to Tecnimont SPA in 2021 to be fully completed in about 44 months.

Dangote Refinery and Petrochemicals FZE- This is a 650,000-bpd refinery located in Lekki, Lagos state. The refinery cost around $19 billion and was commissioned in May 2023. Oil refining started in late December 2023, and it started dispensing products to local and international markets as of May 2024.

Aside Dangote and the soon to be rehabilitated PH and Warri refinery, the others are mere topping refinery and not sustainable in the medium to long term as value chain optimization is lacking.

If these smaller refineries exist, where are they getting crude oil? Even dangote refinery is unable to source crude oil locally and is importing from USA.

And yet none of these refineries have products available in the local market? NNPC imports practically everything! So who are the refineries refining for and selling to?

Are we in the rainy season only, or we are in APC propaganda season as well because of the rate at which these propaganda lies are dropping is seriously serious.

Why have the prices of petrol and diesel not crashed with these 10 refineries and their phantom production capacities

Reasonable Nigerians want to know.

Oil slump: Bring down fuel price immediately, Fashola tells FG ON DECEMBER 7, 2014

Lagos—As the global oil prices slid further downward, Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, yesterday, asked the Federal Government to review downward the pump prices of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS,  from N97 per litre in the country in tandem with the slump in world oil price. President Jonathan and Gov Babatubde Fashola of Lagos The Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC, had last Friday, on its website pegged the oil price at $66.27 per barrel.

Fashola who blasted FG for its reluctance to adjust the pump price of   PMS, made the remarks while addressing hundreds of youths at the  Lagos State and After School  Graduation Development Centre,  AGDC, IGNITE Employability Project 5, Ikeja. He lamented that Nigerians were not receiving fair treatment from the central government like others in oil producing nation.

Fashola said, “Now we should be enjoying cheap fuel if the price of oil has dropped globally. Even as we import the product, a major component has reduced in price and while this has reduced, the pump price of fuel in the country still remains the same. “Then something is wrong. If the price increases in the country when the price of oil goes up globally, then it should also reduce when the price of oil drops. “I understand that I am not an economist; they (Federal Government) are the economists. But I have some logic and common sense to ask critical questions. For instance, if one buy flour at N10 per kilogram, and the bread was sold at N1 per loaf. If the price of flour drops, the price of the bread should also change,” Fashola added.

The governor, therefore, urged President Goodluck Jonathan led administration to follow the footstep of other countries that have reduced the pump price of oil products for their citizens.

BECAUSE 99% OF ALL THESE SO-CALLED REFINERIES GET THERE CRUDE OILS FROM ILLEGAL MINERS AND OIL BUNKERING, AND THEY WILL NEVER SELL THEIR REFINED FUELS IN NIGERIA, THEY PREPARE TO SELL TO BENIN, TOGO, GHANA ETC, WHERE THEY'LL MAKE MORE PROFITS.

Out of your ten completed refineries only five are operational till date. But that’s not the catch. Out of twenty-five licensed modular refineries in your country, not a centilitre of (PMS) petrol has ever and will ever be produced because they’re all designed to produce (AGO) Diesel! The govt just pays lip service to the people, the petrol that all but controls the life of everyone in this nation is in a firm death grip at the hands of the FG! When someone says Nigerians are one of the most overtasked & overtaxed people on the planet, dullards in love with their chains or still eating 'papa thank sir' can never relate! cool
