The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Ltd has fulfilled its pledge of achieving the mechanical completion of rehabilitation work on Area 5 Plant of the Port Harcourt Refining Company (PHRC), reports ITREALMS.

Promise fulfilled: NNPC Ltd delivers Port Harcourt refinery - ITREALMS

The rehabilitation work, according to the Chief Corporate Communications Officer, NNPC Ltd, Mr. Olufemi Soneye in a press statement available to ITREALMS, has been ongoing at the Refinery for over two years and the NNPC Ltd. had pledged to complete Phase One of the project (mechanical completion and flare start-up) of Old Port Harcourt Refinery (Area 5) by 31st December 2023.

 

Speaking during an inspection tour of the rehabilitation project, which also coincided with the 15th Refineries' Rehabilitation Steering Committee Meeting, the Group Chief Executive Officer, NNPC Limited, Mr. Mele Kyari, said as of December 15th, 2023, 84.4% of Area 5 Plant, a key component of the Refinery, and 77.4% of the entire rehabilitation project have been completed.


“In our quest to ensure that this refinery is re-streamed to continue to deliver value to Nigerians, we made a promise that we will reach a mechanical completion of phase one of the rehabilitation project by the end of December and get the other plants running in 2024. Today, we have kept those commitments,” Kyari stated.


The GCEO was quoted as commending the NNPC Ltd’s staff and the EPCIC contractors for doing a great job in ensuring that the refinery achieved that significant milestone.


In his remarks, the Chairman of NNPC Ltd Board, Chief Pius Akinyelure described the milestone as “historic”, stressing that the board was proud of the staff and management of the refinery.


“We are just starting. We want to be at the highest level of production so that we will keep the prices of petroleum prices in the country stable in order to give comfort to our people and generate more revenue for our country,” Akinyelure noted.


Also speaking, the Honourable Minister of State for Petroleum Resources (Oil), Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, said the milestone is another landmark of the renewed hope agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.


He thanked Nigerians for their patience and the trust they have in NNPC Ltd.’s ability to deliver on this huge project.


In his address, the Minister of State for Petroleum (Gas), Rt. Hon. Ekperikpe Ekpo, said re-streaming the Refinery will herald a good omen for the nation’s Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) industry, as LPG, also known as cooking gas, is a major bye-product of the refinery.


Also speaking, the Managing Director of Tecnimont Nig. Ltd., Fabio Del Cioppoone of the EPC Contractors of the Rehabilitation Project, said his company remains committed to fulfilling the terms of the contract.


The PHRC rehabilitation project, which costs about $1.5bn, is an EPCIC project that covers Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Installation, and Commissioning phases. For Area 5, the Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Installation have all been completed. The mechanical completion signifies the closure of the Construction and Installation phases.

 

More importantly, the milestone was achieved under an excellent Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) record, which stood at over 9.5 million manhours with zero Loss Time Injury (LTI).

Dobar dan, moj upit o tome kako dobiti kredit za kupnju kuće od nekretnina počeo je pozivom, nazvao sam Davidson Albert Company, danas sam jako sretan i Bog blagoslovio Davidsona Alberta Kontakt e-mail: {Davidsonalbertloan@gmail.com }

Zovem se Marijana, iz HRVATSKE sam, zadnjih pet mjeseci sam tražila pravu kreditnu tvrtku od koje bih mogla dobiti kredit kako bih mogla kupiti kuću kakvu sam htjela. Dugoročno, bilo je hrpa prijevara zbog kojih sam im povjerovao i na kraju dana su mi uzeli novac bez da su mi dali išta zauzvrat, čak ni 1 euro na moje ime, izgubio sam svaku nadu, bio sam zbunjen i frustriran, nikad nisam želio imati ništa s online tvrtkama za zajam pa sam otišao posuditi novac od prijatelja. Ispričao sam sve što se dogodilo i rekla mi je da mi može pomoći pronaći tvrtku za zajmove koja mi može dati bilo koji iznos zajma koji mi treba i po vrlo niskoj kamatnoj stopi od 3%, također mi je rekla da je upravo dobila zajam od uputio me kako se prijaviti za zajam baš kao što mi je rekla, aplicirao sam s njima putem e-pošte: (davidsonalbertloan@gmail.com), nikad nisam vjerovao, ali sam pokušao, i na moje najveće iznenađenje dobio sam zajam u roku od 24 sati, nisam mogao vjerovati, ponovno sam sretan i bogat i hvala Bogu da takve kreditne kuće još postoje na ovim prevarama posvuda, savjetuju svima koji trebaju posuditi kredit putem e-maila (davidsonalbertloan@gmail.com). Nikada te neće iznevjeriti i tvoj život će se promijeniti kao i moj. Brzo kontaktirajte (davidsonalbertloan@gmail.com) danas i uzmite svoj zajam od njih. Obavezno kontaktirajte DAVIDSON ALBERT LOAN COMPANY za vaš kredit, jer sam uspješno dobio svoj kredit od ove tvrtke bez ikakvog stresa. Posjetite njihovu e-poštu. (davidsonalbertloan@gmail.com)
