The ERPC is a 6,000-barrel-per-day facility that produces diesel, Low Pour Fuel Oil, and naphtha for use within Nigeria and for export.

BusinessDay reports that the refinery was financed through the provision of an investment guarantee by Governor Godwin Obaseki’s government, which made way for the construction of the refining facility, opening up the petroleum refining sub-sector in the state.

The refineries said the crude supply issues had caused delays in the early days, which the deals with Decklar Resources and Millenium Oil and Gas helped address.
