As the Port Harcourt oil Refinery comes to life, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited has concluded plans to hand over the government refinery to private operators.
The NNPCL said it is seeking to engage reputable and credible operations and maintenance companies to operate and maintain the Port Harcourt Refining Company.
This, it said, was “to ensure reliability and sustainability towards meeting the nation’s fuel supply and energy security obligations.”
In a publication on its website on Monday, the NNPCL said the contract scope shall cover refinery business processes like long-term and short-term production/operations planning; production and operations execution; monitoring, reporting, and optimisation of operations; maintenance execution; health and safety; environmental management; minor projects and others.
NNPCL requested that interested companies must demonstrate “a minimum average annual Turnover of at least $2 billion USD for the financial years ending: 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 respectively.”
