Duport Refinery/Energy Park To Begin Operation This Month

Duport Midstream Company Limited (DMCL), an energy park located in Egbokor, Orhionmwon local government area of Edo State, will commence operation this month.

The Energy Park was developed with equity contribution from the Nigerian Content Development And Monitoring Board (NCDMB) in line with the administration’s policy of catalyzing modular refining, which is geared towards increasing in-country refining of petroleum products, adding value to crude oil resources, and creating jobs from oil and gas operations.

The Duport Energy Park has Refinery operations, Gas Processing Facility, Compressed Natural Gas Facility, Power Plants, a Data Center, as well as a Modular Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) that will come in place in the next 12 to 18 months.

At the moment, the Refinery can process 60-million-scf of gas daily. This refinery is a 10,000 barrel per day refinery, starting with 2,500 barrels per day. The power plant capacity is over 50 megawatts and will start with five megawatts. It also has a 32 racks data center that can go up to 100 racks.
According to Akintoye Akindele, the CEO Duport Midstream Company Limited (DMCL)
“In terms of our modular refinery operation, by July (2022), this one will go live to tell you that there are modular refineries working in the country. This (Duport) will be the second refinery that will switch on in July. Currently, one of our refineries is working, which is Watersmith modular refinery that is producing 5,000bpd and serving the eastern market.”

“This government has been very supportive of the energy sector. Not only did they pass the PIA bill, they invested in local companies. Today in Nigeria, we have three refineries working in Nigeria, we have Watersmith, we have Niger Delta and this one is the third. Two of them are funded by the NCDMB. They have supported the capital and policies. On behalf of my management team, I want to say thank you to the government”.
