EIA report for Integrated Oil refinery underway

The project officer of the 20,000 barrels per day modular refinery being planned by Integrated Oil and Gas Limited, Mr. Tayo Ogunbanjo, has said that the Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) report for the project will be ready soon, ThisDay reports.

This followed the recent successful environmental screening meeting between the Environment Unit of the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), the technical partners/engineering consultants and the environmental impact assessment consultants for the refinery, which is to be located at Tomaro Island off the coast of Apapa port zone.

The next stage, he explained, would be the presentation of the Detailed Engineering Design for final screening and approval after which the company would apply for the approval to construct from the DPR. Ogunbanjo who is also driving Eko Petrochem & Refining, the special purpose company that is handling the greenfield refinery project for Integrated Oil and Gas, said the company is not leaving any stone unturned in its determination to enhance the refining capacity of Nigeria and save the citizens the agony of perennial fuel scarcity and unnecessary depletion of the foreign reserves.
