Firm considers floating $15m refinery in Delta
The management of Alexis Refinery Limited has begun moves to establish a $15 million and 10,000 barrels per day modular refinery at Abuator community in Ndokwa East council area of Delta State, with the proposed Petroleum Industrial Bill (PIB) as template for justice.
The facility, which will process Bonny Light crude oil and others, was activated at an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) Scooping Workshop/Community Engagement in Asaba, where it allayed the fears of landlords and impacted communities.
The Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Joey Obue, in an exclusive interview with The Guardian at the weekend, said the project would be implemented in a way to ensure minimal environmental impact.
MEANWHILE, community leaders in Irri, Isoko South council area of the state have expressed displeasure over the sale of a mini-step electricity facility, an act, they noted, was “illegal and has put a thaw on power supply” in the fast-developing settlement.
Led by Mr. Adigheji Orahemo, the stakeholders had told newsmen last week how an indigene was allegedly seen removing the equipment located near the town’s daily market onto a heavy-duty vehicle, before driving it to an unknown destination.
Besides, the Medical Women’s Association of Nigeria in Cross River has called on the wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buhari, for immediate intervention in the release of Dr. Vivian Otu, who was kidnapped by unknown gunmen in Calabar.
They also appealed to the Minister of Women Affairs, Mrs. Pauline Tallen, and the spouse of the state governor, Mrs. Linda Ayade, to ensure the speedy and unconditional release of one of their own.
A Senior Registrar in the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health in the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital (UCTH), Otu was abducted on August 28, 2020 in the Cross River capital.
The appeal was contained in a press release signed and issued to newsmen in Calabar by its president and secretary, Drs. Bassey Nakanda and Angella Imoke.
