NNPC shuts Kaduna, Warri refineries over operation costs, TAM



The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has indefinitely shut down two of the nation’s three refineries due to increase in their operation costs and several maintenance interventions.

A top official of the corporation told Daily Trust, yesterday, that Kaduna and Warri refineries had been down in July and yet to resume production till date.

“Kaduna refinery (KRPC) is about to start complete overhaul – Turn Around Maintenance (TAM). Once the assessment is finished, we will have an idea (when it will be back),” the official said, adding that only the Port Harcourt refinery is functioning at the moment.

Checks showed that both refineries have suffered intermittent shut downs this year.
