Kaduna Refinery Shut Down Over Non-Supply of Crude Oil
The Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company (KRPC) has stop production following renewed activities of Niger Delta militants.
Our Correspondent gathered that the Kaduna refinery stopped production last week Tuesday over what a source attributed to lack of crude oil.
According to the source, “we have shut down production for now. We do not have crude supply, am sure it is due to the renewed militancy in the Niger Delta region.”
The source however assured that the refinery has enough Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) in reserve pending when they would start getting supply of the crude.
“We will resume production as soon as we started getting crude supply from the Niger Delta. We are ready and our equipment are functional, the only problem now is the crude,” said our source.
The Refinery only resumed production late April during the fuel scarcity period.
