A modular Refinery and petro-chemical industry is to be established in Eghudu, Ovia North-East Local Government Area of Edo State, by a United States of America-based Nigerian Business man, Mr Charles Ihaza, Vanguard reports.
Already, about 453.9 hectares of land has been provided for the take – off of the project by the community. Ihaza, who spoke at an Open Forum on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) on the Eghudu Refinery in Benin, last week, said that the project, which is expected to cost over $2 billion, will produce 80,000 barrels of refined petroleum products daily.
He told the forum that with his vast experience in one of the largest refineries in the United States of America and with no fewer than 100 engineers under him, he knew all about the refinery processes and was already discussing with the relevant Federal Government agencies for the immediate take – off of the project.
