How Modular refinery will end illegal oil bunkering in Niger Delta

The Federal Government has restated its commitment to encourage both local and foreign investors to key into its plans to grant licence for the establishment of modular refineries, adding that such establishment would end illegal oil bunkering in the oil-rich Niger Delta region.

It noted that President Muhammadu Buhari was deeply worried about the activities of illegal bunkerers in the region whose actions were causing huge environmental degradation and pollution thus has decided to encourage most especially local investors to key into the project instead of involving themselves in actions that are detrimental to the general wellbeing of the region.

“The President is so concerned about the Niger Delta environment and has assured the ministries and all its agencies of his readiness to ensure that some of the bureaucratic requirements needed for the establishments of such a refinery would be relaxed so that foreign investors like Missouri American Energy Moham and Community Capital Group of Canada can be encouraged to do business under the new dispensation.”

Kachikwu, who was represented by the Executive Director/Coordinator NNPC Refinery, Downstream and Infrastructural Development, Engr. Rabiu Suleiman, added that the federal government would encourage local operators from the region to do legitimate petroleum refining business without necessarily hurting the environment and polluting it.

“The Federal Government is very pleased with Gbaramatu Kingdom for organizing themselves and coming up with such laudable and achievable partnership programme and most especially keying into the Federal Government program aimed at discouraging local and crude method of refining products that has far reaching environmental implications on our ecosystem.

“It’ will further address youths’ restiveness and militancy. This is the most serious investors that we have seen in recent time and we would be happy to see that this pioneer Modular Refinery in Niger Delta comes into reality”, the Petroleum Resources Minister added.
