NNPC reacted to the Port Harcourt refinery fire incident.
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) claims the fire at the Port Harcourt Refining Company (PHRC) on January 1 was minor.
The fire, which started when a 33,000-litre truck discharged naphtha into a refinery tank, was put out in less than two hours.
“Only the discharging truck and the pump bay were affected by the fire.
“No other property was damaged,” said Garba Muhammad, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, NNPC, in Abuja on Sunday.
He went on to say that the PHRC management immediately mobilized the refinery’s safety structure.
He also stated that the Federal Fire Service’s assistance was instrumental in quickly bringing the fire under control.
“Residents in the facility’s immediate vicinity have nothing to be concerned about, as management places the safety of people and property at the top of its priority list.
Mr Muhammed added, “The management and staff of PHRC also express their profound appreciation to all those who contributed to bringing a quick end to the fire.”
