The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation is an integrated Oil and Gas Company, engaged in adding value to the nation’s hydrocarbon resources for the benefit of all Nigerians and other stakeholders.
The downstream industry in Nigeria is well established. The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has 4 refineries: 2 in Port Harcourt (PHRC), and 1 each in Kaduna (KRPC) and Warri (WRPC). These refineries have a joint installed capacity of 445,000 barrels per day. A complete and wide-ranging network of pipelines and depots are strategically positioned throughout Nigeria and links these refineries.
The PHRC is made up of 2 refineries, located at Alesa Eleme near Port Harcourt with a jetty. This jetty is utilised for product import and export. The jetty is positioned 7.5km away from the refinery complex. In 1983, the Port Harcourt refinery with 60,000 bpsd name plate CDU capacity and the tankage facilities were attained by NNPC from SHELL. Consequently, a new 150,000 bpsd export refinery was built in 1988 and commissioned in 1989. Therefore, the current combined installed capacity of PHRC is 210,000 bpsd. The installed capacities of KRPC and WRPC are 110,000 bpsd and 125,000 bpsd correspondingly.
NNPC, through its subsidiary, the Pipelines and Products Marketing Company (PPMC), supplies strictly to bulk customers. They, in turn, achieve the needs of millions of customers across the country for products extending from gasoline and jet fuel to diesel, fuel oil and liquefied petroleum gas.
