The Port Harcourt refinery company, PHRC, has announced plans to begin production of Aviation Turbine Kerosene, ATK.
This is in order to ease the current scarcity of the product, PHRC Managing Director, Bafred Enjugu, said on Friday.
“The good news is that the refinery has met all the international parameters for the production of aviation fuel. We have scored 24 out of the 24 parameters for the production of aviation fuel and I must say that this is made possible because of the never-give-up attitude of workers of the great PHRC,” Mr. Enjugu said.
He said the refinery has successfully blended ATK and was only waiting for appropriate conditions to commence full scale production of the product in response to demand of the aviation sector.
He spoke when the Group Managing Director of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Maikanti Baru, visited the 210,000 barrels per day facility.
