In a renewed bid to achieve the planned 100,000bpd modular refinery and serenecity estate projects in Lagos state, the management of Midoil Refining and Petrochemicals Company Limited, under the ebullient leadership of its Executive Chairman, Chief (Mrs.) Elizabeth Omolara Akintonde, recently led a team of consultants, contractors, as well as major stakeholders, including Unilag Consults on a familiarisation and inspection tours of the ongoing projects in Sekungba, Ererufu and other neighbouring communities.

The one-day tour, held recently drew together, all major stakeholders involved in the project to the site, where far-reaching decisions were taken on the possible ways to achieve the project within the budget and at a stipulated period of time.

The event was specifically organised to avail prospective civil contractors for the perimeter fencing of the 364 hectares of land, as well as Unilag Consult, represented by the Managing Director, Prof Mohammed Usman, the opportunity to see things for themselves.

The on-the-spot assessments of the projects equally gave the stakeholders the ample opportunity to ascertain the hectares of land allotted for the modular refinery.

The day’s inspection started from on-going perimeter fencing of the Serenecity located at Ererufu and Mogo Olowu communities, after a short prayer offered by Very Rev. Johnson Olaniyi of the Methodist Church, Palm Avenue, Mushin, Lagos.

The team of Midoil consultants was led by the Consulting Architect; Quantity Surveyor; Civil Engineers; Structural Engineers; Mechanical/Electrical Engineers, as well as Security Experts among others, thoroughly inspected and deliberated on the level of works done so far on the fencing projects and site clearing.

The inspectors, however proceeded to Sekungba community, the proposed site for the modular refinery.

A brief stop-over was made at the residence of the Baale of Sekungba community, Chief Solomon Omotayo, who clocked 99 years this year to pay homage, afterwhich, the team proceeded to Ejinrin jetty for inspection and further deliberations.

The refinery site at Ejirin/Sekungba communities was also inspected, as pillar identification was done with deliberations on location of the proposed main entrance to the refinery, from Ketu/Ejirin mainroad.

The team later returned to Ererufu town hall, built by the management of Midoil, where lunch was served with a closing prayer said by Very Reverend Johnson.

The next site inspection was tentatively scheduled for Saturday, June 1, 2024, when more works would have been completed on the fencing by the contractors handling the project.
