A new 5,000 barrels per day modular refinery will soon be commissioned in the Niger Delta.
The modular refinery, Niger Delta Petroleum Resources Refinery, in Ogbele, Rivers State – is currently refining 1,000 bpd and was recently upgraded to 6,000 bpd.
This is in line with the Niger Delta New Vision plan of the Buhari administration to develop the Niger Delta region.
“The Buhari administration is very excited about the commissioning of this project and is indeed committed to changing the negative perception and narrative of the Niger Delta,” the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, Mr. Edobor Iyamu, stated.
There are currently six modular refineries at different stages of completion in the Niger Delta region.
