An indigenous oil and gas company, ND Western Ltd, says it is getting ready to take the Final Investment Decision on its 10,000 barrels per day refinery in Uturogu, Delta State.

The Managing Director, ND Western Ltd, Mr Eberechukwu Oji, made the disclosure while speaking with newsmen on the sidelines of the 2022 Nigeria Oil and Gas conference and exhibition on Wednesday in Abuja.

Oji said the Front End Engineering Design for the project which was a Joint Venture with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation had been completed.

He said issues such as finance and off takers of the refined petroleum products must be addressed before the board approves the FID.

On gas development in Nigeria, Oji called on the Federal Government to work with the private sector in transforming Nigeria into an industrialised country through its abundant natural gas resources.
