Nigeria's Duport Modular refinery expected by year's end.
Duport Midstream Company Limited of Lagos announced in late March that its upcoming modular refinery in Nigeria’s Edo State would indeed be ready for commissioning in the fourth quarter of this year. This project is being implemented by Duport alongside the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB).
NCDMB Executive Secretary Simbi Kesiyi Wabote recently toured the project site and reportedly confirmed that the project has reached approximately 80% completion. The Duport modular refinery is a small part of the country’s long-term objective for improving its industrialization. Mr. Wabote stated that “When the Federal Government enunciated the policy on the development of modular refineries, the NCDMB decided to explore ways through which we can build modular refineries to refine products locally.”
Duport Midstream Company Limited is hoping to develop the first energy park in Nigeria, beginning with this refinery and over the next five years it hopes to add a gas processing plant, a CNG plant, a refined product terminal and a power plant in Nigeria’s Edo State.
