Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

IFC’s financing is seeking to support Niger Delta Exploration & Production PLC (NDEP) in its expansion of the existing 1,000 bopd mini refinery (train 1) with two simple stage modular refining trains (trains 2 and 3), both of which have a capacity of 5,000 bopd per train (the “project”). The second train is complete and will be commissioned by end of 2019 with the third under construction. The NDRe refinery expansion has been undertaken utilizing modular refinery design, with the required equipment for the refinery having been designed, fabricated and assembled in the USA on skids and shipped to the NDRe site for inter-skid installation. Once completed, the mini refinery trains will process light crude sourced from the NDPR Ogbele asset at a capacity of 11,000 bopd broadening the NDRe current product portfolio from diesel to include gasoline, marine diesel, dual purpose kerosene, naphtha and heavy fuel oil.

The NDRe trains are located within the existing NDPR processing plant boundaries. The two closest residential communities are located approximately 2 kms and 3kms from the site respectively. There are no communities or settlements along the ~4.6km access road connecting the processing plant to the main highway.

The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
