“NNPC has taken the lead in supporting local players in both the upstream and downstream sub sector of the Petroleum Industry. We are therefore willing to support Petrolex in whatever way we can. I am pleased to say that this vision is complimentary to NNPC’s mandate to ensure products availability and seamless transportation across Nigeria. It is a bold stride at complimenting Government’s effort.”
Having successfully completed its first phase, Petrolex Group says its second phase is on course to establish: 50 modern retail stations; 1.2 billion litre capacity storage; Lube plant; Gas processing facility; Fertilizer plant; and a refinery that will situate near the tank farm, which on completion, will operate at a capacity of 250,000 bpd.
