Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited says it has completed the supply of over 475,000 barrels of crude oil to the Port Harcourt Refining Company Limited, through its Bonny Oil & Gas Terminal.
This, according to a statement signed by the Media Relations Manager, Abimbola Essien-Nelson, is in furtherance of the Federal Government’s commitment to increase domestic refining capacity, and make products more readily available in the country.
She said BOGT resumed this supply last week after a prolonged outage of over five years, during which time the refinery underwent rehabilitation and integrity activities on its supply pipeline from BOGT.
Country Chair, Shell Companies in Nigeria and Managing Director, The Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited, Dr. Osagie Okunbor, said, “Teams from BOGT and PHRC worked through intensive preparations, collaboration, and dedication to make the project successful.
This is indeed a significant step in the nation’s renewed efforts to utilise key infrastructures to assure the steady supply of products from the refining company to the Nigerian market.”
