Cherif M. Abdallah, chairman, and chief executive officer of a local petroleum company, Conex Petroleum Group Incorporated, on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, broke ground to construct phase II of a storage terminal, located in the courtyard of the Bong Mines Pier at the Freeport of Monrovia. Accordingly, it will also ensure petroleum product sufficiency and job creation, “but will take approximately 24 months from commencement of construction.”“Here we are today with a modern petroleum storage terminal built strictly on the American Petroleum Institute (API) standard, to include the construction of the Oil Processing Facility,” Abdallah said. Therefore, Conex has decided to work collaboratively with the Coalition for Democratic Change-led government to bring economic independence to Liberians. Mr. Abdallah made these remarks at the groundbreaking ceremony to commence the construction of its refinery phase II project. Vice President Taylor, who proxied for President Weah, expressed gratitude for the level of work the Conex Group has done so far.
