Nigeria’s Energy Revival: Port Harcourt and Warri Refineries Set to Boost Fuel Production by 2024

In the midst of Nigeria’s persistent fuel scarcity, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Petroleum (Downstream), has announced ambitious plans to fully operationalize the Port Harcourt and Warri refineries by the close of 2024. Assuring the nation of concrete steps toward this goal, he also indicated progress for the Kaduna Refinery, slated for operation by next year.

 

Senator Ubah emphasized that alongside refinery upgrades, the forthcoming Dangote Refinery, with a capacity of 650,000 barrels per day (bpd), will significantly contribute to meeting domestic fuel demands. He advocated for the establishment of modular refineries as part of broader efforts to enhance Nigeria’s crude oil refining capabilities.

 

Committing to his mandate, Senator Ubah pledged continuous oversight, with technical teams scheduled biweekly refinery visits to ensure timely completion.
