YAOUNDE, Cameroon--A delegation for Lukoil met Thursday with Cameroon's Minister of Energy and Water Resources, Gaston Eloundou Essomba, for talks over the rehabilitation of the country's single refinery.
The talks discussed the revamping of Cameroon's National Refining Company, or SONARA, as well as halting refined fuel imports which began amid the closure of Cameroon's refinery on May 31, 2019, after it caught fire.
The refinery is currently undergoing a 300 billion CFA franc ($502.7 million) transformation program to enable it to refine Cameroon's heavy crude oil.
