The Nigeria National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) is actively seeking global partnerships for the management of the Port Harcourt Refinery, signaling a strategic move towards operational efficiency and global industry collaboration.

In an official Expression of Interest (EOI) posted on its website, NNPCL has laid out specific criteria for eligible organizations. Prospective partners must demonstrate a minimum yearly turnover of $2 billion over the past four years, possess audited financial details for the same period, a proven track record in Nigeria and other African countries, and a commitment to local content compliance.

The Port Harcourt Refinery, currently undergoing a comprehensive $1.5 billion rehabilitation, comprises two units: an older plant with a refining capacity of 60,000 barrels per day (bpd) and a newer facility with a capacity of 150,000 bpd, totaling 210,000 bpd.

The proposed partnership involves both long-term and short-term commitments, including production and operations planning, execution, monitoring, reporting, and optimization. Other responsibilities encompass maintenance planning (short-term), execution, reliability, inspection, engineering quality control, quality assurance, laboratory services, specialist engineering, health and safety, environmental management, turnaround maintenance planning and execution, minor projects, non-hydrocarbon procurement, and sub-contractor management.

Last month, NNPCL announced the mechanical completion of the rehabilitation of the 60,000 bpd unit. This unit is anticipated to yield approximately 10.2 million liters of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) daily. Femi Soneye, the NNPCL spokesperson, assured that the testing phase would conclude shortly, ensuring the refinery’s efficient operation, with overall completion expected within the month.
