Kaduna Refinery To Resume Production Of Petrol April 27

 

The management of Kaduna Refinery and Petrochemical Company (KRPC), says the refinery will resume daily production of petrol starting from tomorrow, April 27.

This, according to the Managing Director, Idi Muktar, is part of efforts to address the current fuel scarcity across the country, who spoke to reporters on Tuesday.

Mukhtar explained that the plant, which will be getting supply of crude oil from Escravos in Warri, will be producing at an average of two million litres of petrol per day.

He said that efforts have been put in place to ensure constant supply of the petroleum products to help reduce the hardship Nigerians are facing due to fuel scarcity across the country.

He explained that with the availability of crude oil, the refinery will be producing 2 million litres of Petrol Motor Spirit (PMS) daily, insisting that all hands are on deck to ensure steady supply across the states.

Mr Muktar pointed out that once the supply is sustained, there will be no scarcity of petrol in the country.

He also blamed activities of pipeline vandals as largely responsible for the current fuel scarcity.
