Nigeria plans to transform illegal refineries into consortium

As the fight against illegal refineries in Nigeria’s oil-rich Niger Delta region rages on, the country’s petroleum authority has revealed plans to engage illegal workers to increase output. The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has announced that the government will create a consortium that will engage youths working in illegal refineries to produce 1000 barrels of crude per day, the state news agency reported.

This follows a plan announced by the Federal Government to transform refineries into legal entities so as to dissuade the youth from crime and create jobs.
