Nigeria reviews contract with Total

May 11, 1999 02:00 AM

The Nigerian government has decided to review a $ 214.98 mm oil refinery maintenance contract with the French Total, a government official said.
The official, who was not named, told at the refinery at Kaduna in northern Nigeria, that the government was not happy with Total's performance at the Kaduna Refinery and Petrochemical Company (KRPC).
Total was in January 1998 awarded a contract to conduct "turn around maintenance" on the refinery which was shut down in July 1997.
After several delays, the company announced in February that the plant was back in production.
But KRPC officials said production at the plant has yet to resume. Government officials could not be reached to confirm the review of the contract. Total officials were in a meeting discussing the reports, a spokesman said.
