This study, therefore, investigated the reasons for the failure. It also sought to understand the major areas in turnaround maintenance that could help in smooth running of the refineries. The study was executed through the review of related literature, interview and questionnaire administered to the workers of the oil industry. Data gathered were analyzed using frequencies and multiple regressions.
