The revival of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) depot in Enugu, Enugu State come next April would restore over 3 000 jobs lost to the facility’s long inactivity, Guardian reports.
It was also learnt that the Port Harcourt refinery stopped supplies to the depot, built in 1979 with an installed capacity of 12,000,000m/3 around 1996, following regular vandalisation of the pipelines linking it with other facilities.
The depot, with capacity to stock Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) or petrol, Dual Purpose Kerosene (DPK) and Automobile Gas Oil (AGO), was serving Enugu, Anambra, Kogi, Ebonyi and parts of Imo, Benue and Cross River states.
With over 500 marketers, it supplied six million litres of petrol, two million litres of kerosene and another two million of diesel daily.
Since its inactivity, marketers had resorted to sourcing products from Lagos, Warri and Port Harcourt with the concomitant job loss according to Today.
But the National Coordinator, Anti-Pipeline Vandalism and Petroleum Products Adulteration, Prince Nexin Udoka Ahanonu, told reporters at the weekend in Enugu that the rehabilitation of the pipelines had almost been completed.
