The Federal Government’s plan of building modular refineries has received a boot as an Indonesian firm, PT Intim Perkasa Nigeria Ltd, a subsidiary of PT Intim Perkasa, Indonesia, has shown interest in building a modular refinery in Nigeria.
 
At a meeting with the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Maikanti Baru, the representative of the company said the proposed refinery would be located in Akwa Ibom State with a refining capacity for 10,000 barrels per day.
 
A statement by the NNPC said given Nigeria’s expected population, by 2025, more than 40 million litres of petrol would be required for local consumption.
 
It added that with this kind of investment coming steadily, Nigeria could serve as a regional hub of refined petroleum products for West Africa and beyond.
