The fa­cility, with its feedstock is expected to produce 50 percent of diesel (500,000 litres), 25 percent of naphtha (300,000 litres), and 20 percent of Low Pour Fuel Oil (LPFO) (200,000) litres, Daily Independent reports.

The company got its first supply of 10,000 barrels of crude feedstock from Decklar Resources Inc. and its co-ven­turer, Millennium Oil & Gas Company Limited, which op­erates the Oza Oil Field.

The refinery was devel­oped by Edo Refinery and Petrochemical Company Limited (ERPC) with support from the state government through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

In a statement, the com­pany said it will complete the phase II of the project in March 2023, “which adds 12,000bpd capacity to cap pro­duction at 21,000bpd”.

Edo Modular Refinery is the first of two refinery proj­ects in the state, alongside the Duport Refinery, which is op­erated by Duport Midstream Company Limited.

The two modular refin­eries were attracted into the state on the back of nuanced reforms by the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led admin­istration to boost investment inflow and drive industriali­sation in the state.

The delivery of 10,000 bar­rels of crude from Decklar and Millenium to Edo Refin­ery was conducted under the terms of the sales agreement of which an invoice has been issued and payment received.

The initial agreement pro­vided for deliveries totaling 10,000bbls, and a new agree­ment is being negotiated for the delivery of an additional 30,000bbls.

According to report, the parties are also in discussions to potentially agree upon a monthly minimum quantity of barrels of Oza Oil Field crude to be sold to the refinery.

The report also quoted Decklar, a Canadian produc­er of Nigerian marginal oil fields, to have said, “Decklar and Millenium have received payment on the first invoice for delivered crude under the 10,000bbls sale agreement with Edo refinery.”

It noted it has also issued an invoice for delivery of the first 5,000bbls as part of the 30,000bbl sale agreement with the Edo Refinery with payment expected in approx­imately three weeks.

“With continued produc­tion and delivery of crude oil it is expected that regular billing and receipts of sales proceeds will occur”, Decklar said.

“Ten trucks are currently in operation and are capable of delivering approximately 2,500bbls every four days. Ad­ditional trucks are expected to be contracted over the next few weeks to increase delivery capacity”, Decklar said.
