Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria (SPDC) Limited says it has completed the supply of over 475,000 barrels of crude oil to the Port Harcourt Refining Company Limited (PHRC), through its Bonny Oil & Gas Terminal (BOGT).
This disclosure is contained in a statement signed by Shell Nigeria’s Media Relations Manager, Abimbola Essien-Nelson, on Monday, February 12, 2024, where she confirmed the supplies.
Essien-Nelson stated that this was in furtherance of the Federal Government’s commitment to increase domestic refining capacity and make petroleum products more readily available in the country.
She said BOGT resumed this supply last week after a prolonged outage of over five years, during which time the refinery underwent rehabilitation and integrity activities on its supply pipeline from Bonny Oil and Gas Terminal.
