According to a statement issued on Tuesday by Ohi Alegbe, the NNPC’s Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, the three refineries had been projected to increase combined production to over 10 million litres per day by the end of January.

It said a breakdown indicated that the Port Harcourt refinery, which was re-streamed a week earlier, produces about 4.09 million litres while Kaduna yields 1.29 million litres.
