P’Harcourt refinery management: NNPCL gives conditions for net worth investors  


By Abiodun OBA


Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), noted in an Expression of Interest (EOI) posted on its website, that the financial details of the would-be Port Harcourt Refinery managers must be audited in the last four years among others.

NNPCL added that they must also have experience working in Nigeria and other African countries as a record of local content compliance.

The company said the contract would be long-term and short-term production/operations planning, production and operations execution, monitoring, reporting and optimisation of operations, maintenance planning (short-term), maintenance execution, reliability and inspection.

NNPCL added that the lucky firm would also process and undertake engineering quality control, quality assurance and laboratory, specialist engineering, health and safety, environmental management, turnaround maintenance planning and execution, minor projects, non-hydrocarbon procurement and sub-contractor management.

It requested that refinery managers across the world, especially original manufacturers, must have maintained at least $2 billion yearly turnover in the last four years as well.

The facility, being rehabilitated for $1.5 billion, has two units, with the old plant having a refining capacity of 60,000 barrels per day (bpd) and the new one 150,000 bpd, both summing up to 210,000 bpd.

Last month, NNPCL announced the mechanical completion of rehabilitation of the unit which would process 60,000 barrels per day. The unit is to produce an estimated 10.2 million litres of Premium Motor Spirit (APMS) daily.

Its spokesperson, Femi Soneye, had said the test-run would be completed this month.

“Testing will conclude shortly, ensuring the refinery’s efficient operation. That phase will be completed this month,” he promised.
