NNPC Signs Deal With Tecnimont SpA to Rehabilitate Port Harcourt Refinery

Posted on April 6, 2021

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has signed an Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) contract with Tecnimont SpA, a subsidiary of Maire Tecnimont.

This was disclosed by NNPC via its Twitter handle on Tuesday.

The deal is for the rehabilitation of Port Harcourt Refining Company (PHRC).

It tweeted, “Signing Ceremony of Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) Contract for the Rehabilitation of Port Harcourt Refining Company (#PHRC) between @NNPCgroup and Tecnimont SpA.”

The Group Managing Director, NNPC, said, “I can confirm to you that nobody has been delegated by anybody in this company to work for (the interest of) anyone other than the mandate of delivering on this rehabilitation project.

“Mr President promised Nigerians he’ll fix the refineries. We’re happy to deliver on this Presidential mandate. We’ll continue this process to also deliver on both Warri and Kaduna Refineries.”

Present at the signing ceremony are MD, PHRC, Engr. Ahmed Dikko, Mr. Davide Pellizola, and Vice President, Sub-Saharan Africa, Maire Tecnimont.

Some weeks ago, Federal Government announced it is spending the sum of $1.5 billion on the Port Harcourt Refinery, as it weighs in on the controversies and unverified claims by some Nigerians on the funds for the project.

The state oil giant said that the funds approved for the 210,000 barrels per day capacity refinery was for complete rehabilitation and not turnaround maintenance.
