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.
