KRPC was commissioned in 1980 as NNPC Refinery Kaduna. Its initial capacity was 100,000 Barrels Per Stream Day [BPSD]. As the third Refinery in the country, it was established to cope with the growing demand for petroleum products, especially in the Northern part of the country.
The Refinery was designed to process both Nigerian and imported crude oils into fuels and lubes products.
In December 1985, the Fuels section of the Refinery was successfully debottle-necked from 50,000 BPSD to 60,000 BPSD, bringing the total refinery installed capacity to 110,000 BPSD.
In March 1988, the 30,000 MT per annum, Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) Petrochemical Plant was commissioned. The Petrochemical Plant, being a downstream of plant of the Refinery, derives its entire raw materials including utility supplies from the Refinery.
NNPC embarked on commercialization exercise the same year 1988 and it became necessary to merge the two plants (Refinery and Petrochemical Plants) to form a single subsidiary company of NNPC known as Kaduna Refining and petrochemical Company Limited (KRPC), which was incorporated as a limited liability Company on 3rd November 1988. It occupies an area equivalent to approximately 1.8 square Kilometre
Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company (KRPC) was established to efficiently and profitably process crude oil into refined petroleum products and manufacture linear alkyl benzene (LAB) and tins and drums for domestic consumption and export.
The objectives of KRPC are to optimize the capacities of the existing plants, reduce the plants' operating costs, develop new products from existing facilities for use in downstream industries and extend refining services to the West African sub-region. Like other subsidiaries of NNPC, KRPC is owned 100% by NNPC.
