The Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company (KRPC) on Tuesday said it that the company was currently operating at 60 per cent production capacity.
The KRPC Managing Director, Sa’idu Aliyu, said this when he led members of the company’s management on a familiarisation visit to Governor Mukhtar Yero in Kaduna.
Aliyu explained that the company’s crude refining plants were up-to-date and in good condition, but depended on adequate supply of crude to achieve optimum production capacity.
He, however, said the company’s lubricants and petrochemical plants were dormant due to non-supply of foreign crude.
Yero, in his response, highlighted KRPC’s impact on the economy of the state and nation at large.
He urged the company’s management to sustain their production capacity to boost the company’s revenue and its multiplier effects on the economy.
Yero urged the management to uphold the company’s corporate social responsibility roles to its host communities in the state, particularly in the area of youth empowerment
