As part of strides towards ensuring the rehabilitation of the nation’s refineries, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has inaugurated eight committees.
Group managing director of NNPC, Maikanti Baru, made this known in a statement issued to newsmen on Wednesday.
Baru, in the statement, charged the committee with returning the country’s three refineries to their nameplate capacities by the year 2019.
While inaugurating the committees, Baru, charged them to deploy “out of the box solutions” to ensure that the refineries return to their good old days of top class performance.
“I am convinced that the teams we have selected here today will give the necessary direction towards returning the refineries back to their optimal levels of performance,” the GMD told members of the Committees.
“We want to show everyone that we can fully run the refineries. You must all work together to operate them at 100% capacity as this was the only way to ensure profitability,” he added.
