The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr Ibe Kachikwu, has said there are strong indications that three out of the 40 planned modular refineries would come on stream by end of 2019.
Kachikwu disclosed this at the three-day Biennial International Conference for Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) organised by Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) in Lagos on Monday.
“Out of the 40 licenses issued, only 10 have shown progress by submitting their programmes and putting something on the ground. By end of 2019, we are assured that three private modular refineries would come on stream,’’ he said.
