Mele Kyari: We Shut Down Refineries Deliberately
The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mele Kolo Kyari, has said that the NNPC shut down the Country’s refineries deliberately.
He further stated that it was because the Refineries were unsustainable according to them. That the NNPC was unable to supply Crude Oil to the refineries and it was practically impossible to run the pipelines at optimum capacity.
For instance, to run Kaduna and Warri refinery, you need to deliver 170,000 barrel of oil per day so that both will operate at 70 percent capacity
And I can tell you today that except the Atlas cove to Ibadan line and also the Portharcourt to Aba line, none of these pipelines is serviced.
We cannot flow product into these lines, the cheap one is to say they are aged but the real reason is that the level of activities of vandals on these lines is gross, monumental, and profound.
At every point within a month we fix 80 vandal points, the option is to shut them down and the result of having one depot is what we have seen in LagosMele Kyari
