The Federal Government of Nigeria has said it is working assiduously to ensure that all the country’s refineries are fixed in order to end importation of fuel as well as stop flaring of gas in the country in next few years.

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, disclosed this on Thursday while speaking to journalists at Eleme, shortly after inspecting the ongoing rehabilitation of the Port Harcourt Refinery.

Lokpobiri reassured Nigerians that the Port Harcourt Refinery will come on stream before the end of 2023 and will be producing between 54,000 barrels and 60,000 barrels per day.

He said: “The essence of today’s inspection is to come and see the extent of done in the Port Harcourt Refinery. It is the beginning of our efforts to go round all the refineries in this country.

“From Port Harcourt we will go to Warri, we will go to Kaduna. We will also go to Dangote Refinery where we also have stake. Our own objective is to ensure that in the next few years, Nigeria stops fuel importation. That is why we are here to see the extent of work done.
