As Nigeria’s fuel scarcity continues, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Petroleum (Downstream), said two refineries – Port Harcourt and Warri – would be fully operational by the end of 2024.

Ubah said plans have already been implemented to achieve the target, adding that the Kaduna Refinery would also be operational before the end of next year.

The Senator also said the completion of the plants and the addition of supply from the 650,000 barrels per day bpd Dangote Refinery would enable the nation to meet its domestic fuel demand.

He urged the federal government and other stakeholders to work toward the establishment of modular refineries to further expand the nation’s domestic capacity to refine crude oil.

He said: “My mandate is to ensure that the refineries in Nigeria are up and functional. By my involvement, before the end of this year, two refineries will be up and running.

“Also, before the end of next year, the Kaduna refinery will come on stream. Also, the production of jet oil and lubricants will be produced by mid-next year.

“I can assure Nigerians that I will tirelessly pursue and ensure that these refineries are up and running before the end of the year. We have set up a technical team to visit the refineries every two weeks in order to meet the set target.”
