Port Harcourt Refining Company (PHRC) Limited, had earlier unveiled plans to embark on rehabilitation project to meet local needs of petroleum product in Nigeria.
The Managing Director of the company, Dr. Bafred Audu Enjugu, said last week in Port Harcourt, that the management of the company, with support of the parent Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), have embarked on rehabilitation of Area I which hosts the crude distillation unit (CDU) to pave way for simultaneous operations and upgrade of other units ahead of July when crude supply to the plant is expected to be restored.
Is the expected CHANGE here at last???…Hmmm…fingers crossed.
