Kaduna Refinery Shut Down
Nigeria’s oil refineries are in a constant struggle to remain in operation. While some are completely idle, some are working below capacity and now, the Kaduna refinery has been temporarily shut down.
The Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC said on Thursday is because of lack of crude.
NNPC is now making arrangements to supply crude so production can resume, an NNPC spokesman told Reuters by phone, without giving further details.
Kaduna, with a capacity of 110,000 barrels per day, is one of Nigeria’s three main oil refineries. They are frequently beset with issues that mean they can either not operate at all or cannot work at full capacity.
The Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC needs help with more pipelines across Nigeria.
On Wednesday, the Group Managing Director of the Corporation, Maikanti Baru requested help of private investors to come and help repair and build pipelines.
Baru told the new board of downstream subsidiary Nigerian Pipeline Storage Company (NPSC) that the company should form partnerships with the private sector and double the number of its pipelines over the next 10 years.
