Kaduna - The Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company (KRPC) has been shut down again after reopening in April.
The refinery is said to have been shut due to a lack of crude oil which was caused by the renewed violence in the Niger Delta, Leadership reports.
The recent violence in the Niger Delta has been claimed by militant group, Niger Delta Avengers.
The source according to Pulse however assured that the refinery has enough Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) in reserve pending when they would start getting supply of the crude.
“We will resume production as soon as we started getting crude supply from the Niger Delta. We are ready and our equipment are functional, the only problem now is the crude,” said our source.
The refinery only resumed production late April during the fuel scarcity period.
