According to Ifeanyi Ubah, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Petroleum (Downstream), Nigeria is on track to have two fully operational refineries – Port Harcourt and Warri – by the end of 2024.

Ubah revealed that concrete plans are in place to achieve the target, with the Kaduna Refinery also expected to come online before the end of next year.

He stressed that the completion of the plants, combined with the additional supply from the 650,000 barrels per day Dangote Refinery, will enable Nigeria to meet its domestic fuel demands.
