Kaduna Refinery shut down due to attacks on oil facilities in Niger Delta

Following the renewed attacks by some militants on oil facilities in the Niger Delta region, the Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company (KRPC) has reportedly stopped production. According to Leadership, the refinery stopped production last week Tuesday. A source at the refinery said

"We have shut down production for now. We do not have crude supply. I am sure it is due to the renewed militancy in the Niger Delta region. 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".
