Warri – Despite challenges posed by renewed militancy in the Niger Delta, reopened Warri Refinery and Petrochemical Company, WRPC, currently produces 2.5 million litres of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, and 2.2m of kerosene per day.

Managing Director of the company, Mr. Solomon Ladenegan, disclosed this yesterday, at Ifiekporo, Warri South Local Government Area, Delta State, where he commissioned a community road project executed by WRPC.

He said: “Militancy has not directly affected the refinery, but has only slowed crude supply. It is not good for the refinery to be running and get shut down for 12 days due to lack of crude oil, so we are dealing with the issues.

“Currently, we are able to produce 2.5 million litres of petrol and 2.2 million of kerosene daily, the plants are running and we are working to do more.”
