Kaduna Refinery Reaches 60 Percent Production Capacity

Kaduna Refinery

The recently completed second phase rehabilitation work at the Kaduna Refinery and Petro-Chemical Company has enabled it achieve 60 percent production capacity, the managing director of the firm, Saidu Mohammed, has said.



    According to Mohammed, who spoke to Channels Television, the company will soon commence the third of four phases of repairs, adding that the target is to reach 80 to 90 per cent production by the second quarter of 2016.

    “We have carried out overhaul of all major compressors in the plant. Others are awaiting the arrival of some spare parts, but they are all in order to increase the capacity,” Mohammed said.

    “Today, we can confidently run 60 per cent. But we have to improve the reliability of the plant.”

    The 60 per cent production capacity means the company refines about 1.6 million litres of Premium Motor Spirit, also known as petrol, per day.
