Kaduna motorists have no reason to suffer from fuel scarcity- Refinery boss

Long queue at filling station

There are long queues at filling stations in Kaduna

The Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company, KRPC, says it is supplying an average of 1.5 million litres of fuel daily, enough to serve the needs of marketers in Kaduna and its environs.

The KRPC Executive Director of Operations, Banfred Enjugu, made the disclosure to newsmen in Kaduna on Wednesday night. He said there is no reason for the lingering fuel queues in the area.

Petrol is relatively scarce in Kaduna, like most other states, with black market operators selling for as high as N200 per litre in some areas.

Mr. Enjugu also said that the management of the company is working hard to ensure continued flow of the product.

“We are producing steadily. The Management does not see any reason why, with that level of production and release of the product, there should be queues in Kaduna”.

Mr. Enjugu, who was feted along with three other management staff of the company on their recent promotion, pledged to restore the company to full capacity, expand and modernise its facilities.

“We have a rehabilitation project in place that is going to guide the realisation of this objective.

“In so doing, we also want to restore the confidence of the staff to appreciate that they are working in a first class company,” Mr. Enjugu said.

The other management staff who were elevated include, Ian Udoh, the Managing Director of Port Harcourt Refining Company; Beks Ladun, the General Manager, Power; and Sebastian Ekeanyanwu, the General Manager, Finance.

Mr. Udoh said the Port Harcourt Refinery would attain 60 per cent production level by the middle of December.

“The mandate is to run the refineries at 60 per cent capacity. After the Turn Around Maintenance, TAM, and rehabilitation projects, it would run up to 90 per cent full capacity.

“We will do everything humanly possible to run the refineries at least until the improvement projects are done,” Mr. Udoh said.
