He said that the resumption of refining of the products was expected to balance the disequilibrium in the for demand and supply of the products as being experienced in parts of the country.

He further said that the Kaduna Refinery had also commenced operations to ease the situation in supply and distribution of petroleum products nationwide.

In the statement, Mr Solomon Ladenegan, the Managing Director of Warri Refining and Petrochemical Company (WRPC), said that the plant was doing well.

This, he said, was especially so since the Crude Distillation Unit (CDU) was revived on Jan. 7, adding that it resumed production same day.

According to Ladenegan, the plant now refines 2 million litres of kerosene and 3 million litres of diesel daily.

“This morning, we have pumped the products to PPMC and they have started loading; they are going to load up to one million litres of diesel and kerosene.

“The products are there in the tank and we are doing everything to get them to the market,” Ladenegan said.

In the same vein, the Managing Director of the Port Harcourt Refining Company (PHRC), Dr Bafred Enjugu, said that the refinery was producing 3 million litres of AGO (diesel) daily.

This, he said, was in addition to 2 millions of DPK (kerosene) being produced by the refinery daily.

Enjugu expressed happiness that his operators were thrilled following the rehabilitation of old Port Harcourt Refinery.

He said that with the development, production of diesel was being carried out by locals without deployment of foreign expertise.
