The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, disclosed this to State House correspondents at the end of the weekly meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

According to the minister, the rehabilitation will commence in three phases.

He said: “The Ministry of Petroleum Resources presented a memo on the rehabilitation of Port Harcourt refinery for the sum of $1.5bn, and that memo was $1.5 billion and it was approved by council today.

“So, we are happy to announce that the rehabilitation of the refinery will commence in three phases.
