The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has debunked claims that operations at the Warri refinery in Delta State have been shut down temporarily for routine maintenance.

Spokesman of the corporation, Mr. Fidelis Pepple, in a statement, said the NNPC Warri Refinery was in good shape and not in need of any form of turnaround maintenance that will warrant operations being closed down.

Pepple said it was important to clarify the issue, as some media reported that the NNPC Warri operations had been shut down for purported routine check.

He urged the public to disregard the reports and explained that the corporation was doing everything within its capacity to ensure that petroleum products were made available to the populace during the festive season.

The Minister for Petroleum, Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke, had promised Nigerians that there would be sufficient petroleum products during this festive period, but news of the alleged shutdown of Warri refinery heightened the fears of Nigerians, especially those from Delta State and other neighbouring states, that there may be fuel scarcity.
