 Edo Refineries Get 75,500 Barrels of Oil From Oza Field

Decklar Resources Inc., alongside its co-venturer, Millenium Oil & Gas Company Limited, has affirmed that they transported 75,500 barrels of crude to two modular refineries in Edo State, in response to the state government’s initiatives.

The specified facilities include the Edo Refinery and Petrochemical Company (ERPC) in Ologbo, Ikpoba Okha Local Government Area, and the Duport Midstream Company Limited (DMCL) in Egbokor, Orhionmwon LGA.

Sanmi Famuyide, CEO of Decklar Resources, clarified that these deliveries align with the contractual agreements for crude supply and refining with the respective companies.

“Trucking of oil from the Oza Oil Field has continued to the ERPC facility and the DMCL refinery, both located in Edo State, Nigeria,” he said. “Delivery of a total of over 75,500 bbls has been completed to date, with over 60,000 bbls delivered to ERPC and over 15,000 bbls delivered to DMCL.”

EnergyPlanets received a statement disclosing that the construction of the refinery was facilitated by an investment guarantee provided by the government led by Governor Godwin Obaseki.

This guarantee played a crucial role in enabling the establishment of the refining facility, thereby initiating the development of the petroleum refining sub-sector in the state.

“Though crude supply issues had caused lags in its early days, the contract with Decklar Resources and Millennium Oil and Gas Company has helped in addressing the issues.”

The DMCL, which is located within the Duport Energy Park, has a modular refinery, a data centre, a gas processing facility, and a power plant.
