Ninety-six companies from various jurisdictions have indicated interest in undertaking the rehabilitation of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation NNPC)’s downstream infrastructure ranging from critical pipelines to depots and terminals through the build, operate and transfer (BOT) financing model.

The Corporation confirmed this yesterday at a virtual public bid opening exercise held at the NNPC Towers, Abuja, for the prequalification of companies for the contract. Group General Man-ager, Group Public Affairs Division, NNPC, Dr. Kennie Obateru, in a statement, stated that the public opening of the bids for the contract was in keeping with NNPC management’s commitment to transparency and accountability in all its processes and transactions. Speaking at the event, Managing Director of the Nigerian Pipelines and Storage Company (NPSC), Mrs. Ada Oyetunde, disclosed that the exercise was in conformity with the mandate of the Federal Government to prioritise the rehabilitation of critical downstream infrastructure across the country.

She listed the facilities that would be rehabilitated by successful bidders to include critical pipelines for crude oil supply to the refineries and evacuation of refined products, depots and terminals.

She stressed that the objective is to get the facilities ready to support the refineries when they become operational after their rehabilitation. “An open tender for prequalification of interested companies was published in August 2020 in the national dailies, for the rehabilitation of NNPC downstream critical pipelines and associated depots and terminal infrastructure through Finance BOT to cover the four lots namely: Lot 1: Port Harcourt Refinery related infrastructure; Lot 2: Warri Refinery related infrastructure; Lot 3: Kaduna Refinery related infrastructure and Lot 4: System 2B related infrastructure,” Oyetunde stated.
