Phase 1 of the project will deliver a 5,000 BPD Modular capacity refinery which will be followed by phase 2 targeted at delivering 25,000 BPD crude and condensate refinery; designed to produce gasoline, diesel, LPG, kerosene and aviation fuel.

This laudable project succinctly reflects one of Chief Sylva’s key priorities which is the collaboration with the private sector to aggressively increase domestic refining capacity.
