The three refineries of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in Kaduna, Port Harcourt and Warri have resumed production of Automotive Gas Oil (AGO) or diesel and Dual Purpose Kerosene (DPK) or kerosene.

The resumption of refining of the products is expected to balance the disequilibrium in demand and supply being experienced across the country.

Speaking on the production level of the Warri refinery, the Managing Director of the Warri Refining and Petrochemical Company (WRPC), Engr. Solomon Ladenegan, said the plant had been doing well since the Crude Distillation Unit (CDU) was revved up on Saturday.

Ladenegan said the refinery resumed production last Saturday at about 10:22hrs, with the plant\’s CDU functioning. He said the plant now refines 2 million litres of kerosene and 3 million litres of diesel daily.
