Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

State oil refinery, Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) has began refining crude

oil after shutting down operations for almost four months.

This was after TOR managed to secure financial support from Access

Bank to bring in almost 800 barrels of crude oil from Sahara Oil

expected to take one month to refine.

The refinery begun operations on December 29, 2014.

This means that TOR will for the next one month be producing at about

50% of its capacity.

Public Affairs Manager at Tema Oil Refinary, Aba Loko, said the

development is good start for the refinery.

TOR once controled about 80% of the local petroleum market, but has

now dropped to about 20% because it has not been operating beyond

half of its capacity.
