Exciting news for Nigeria’s energy sector! The Port Harcourt Refinery has officially resumed operations after a comprehensive rehabilitation, fulfilling the Federal Government’s promise to bring the refinery back online by December 2023.

This marks a significant milestone in Nigeria’s quest for self-sufficiency in refined petroleum products. The refurbished facility, encompassing processing units, utility plants, and tank farms, is now equipped to contribute to the nation’s energy security and potentially reduce dependence on imported fuel.

The rehabilitation involved a complete overhaul and replacement of major equipment, ensuring the refinery operates at modern standards. This upgrade promises increased production capacity and improved efficiency, contributing to a more stable fuel supply for the country.
