Thursday, November 29, 2018

Nigeria’s Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, said there are strong indications that three out of the 40 planned modular refineries would come on stream by end of 2019.

The Minister disclosed this at the three-day Biennial International Conference for Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) organized by Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR).

“Out of the 40 licenses issued, only 10 have shown progress by submitting their programs and putting something on the ground. By end of 2019, we are assured that three private modular refineries would come on stream,’’ he said.
