The Federal Government has said the Port Harcourt refinery is 80 per cent completed and would produce two million litres of petrol, known as petrol, and 2.2 million litres of diesel per day upon resuming operations.

In a statement by the director, press and public relations in the federal ministry of Labour and employment, Olajide Oshundun, the old plant of the refinery would produce 54,000 barrels per day, while the new plant which is in its last phase of completion, would start production by the end of the year.

The Minister of state, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha after an inspection tour of the facility along with the leadership of organised Labour, stated that the combined capacities of both plants would produce 10 million litres of pms per day.

Onyejeocha stated that the government was open to dialogue with Organised Labour and other stakeholders to achieve peace and harmony in the sector while appealing to the union leaders to consider strike actions as a last option, as it sends wrong signals to investors.
