The NNPC gave a breakdown of the petrol yield from the various plants. It said while Port Harcourt refinery which was re-streamed a week earlier was producing some 4.09 million litres, the Kaduna was contributing some 1.29 million litres and Warri, which was re-streamed on Sunday, was producing 1.38 million litres.
