Reps direct NNPC to stop maintenance for refineries

The House of Representatives Ad-Hoc Committee investigating the state of the nation’s refineries has directed the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to halt the 1.8 billion dollars contract for the Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) at the facilities.
Addressing a media conference in the national assembly, the Chairman of the committee, Garba Mohammed, said the House had mandated the committee to ascertain the viability of continuing investment of public funds on the refineries and allocation of 445,000 barrels per day of crude utilisation for the same purpose.
Mohammed said that during the course of the investigation, the committee would find a way of resolving the epileptic operations of the refineries.
The committee work is expected to be concluded within three months
