The Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board, Mr Simbi Wabote, has said the Duport Modular Refinery in Edo State is on track to be completed before the end of December 2021.

Wabote said this during an inspection visit to Duport Energy Park situated at Egbokor in Edo, according to a statement.

“The project is being developed with equity contribution from the NCDMB in line with the Federal Government’s policy of catalysing modular refining, which is geared towards increasing in-country refining of petroleum products, adding value to crude oil resources, and creating jobs from oil and gas operations,” it said.

Wabote indicated that the installations and civil works at the plant as well as all mechanical works would be concluded before December 23, 2021, adding that the gas gathering facility would also be completed by the first quarter of 2022.

According to him, the local content opportunities on the project are numerous, with 100 per cent of the total workforce being Nigerians, from the clearing of the site to the civil works.

He said all the contracting and sub-contracting phase of the project went through local businesses.

“I am impressed. It is part of what we try to do at NCDMB when we take up any project, we follow it through end to end to see that it is delivered, and we are very optimistic this will also be delivered at the right time with the right quality,” Wabote said while giving his impression over the progress of work done at the project site.
