Fire out-break near Kaduna Refinery

Kaduna refinery 107 February 2014, Abuja – The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, has announced that there was a fire incident earlier in the day at the truckpark near the Kaduna Refinery in which two tankers got burnt and two persons were injured.

The Acting Group General Manager, Public Affairs Division, NNPC, Dr. Omar Ibrahim, in a statement, yesterday, explained that the park where the fire incident occurred is some distance away from the Kaduna Refinery Complex and so did not affect the operations of the refinery in anyway.

“We, therefore, urge members of the public not to engage in panic buying as neither production nor distribution of petroleum products from the refinery was affected in anyway by the fire incident.

“The two persons who sustained injuries in the incident are currently receiving treatment at our clinic,” Dr. Ibrahim said.
