Our refinery will produce 65.4 million litres of petrol, kerosine, others daily – Dangote


Dangote Industries Limited has revealed that its crude oil refinery is expected to produce 65.4 million litres of petrol, diesel, aviation fuel and kerosene daily when it begins operation.

The company disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, noting that  it will be the world’s largest single-train refinery, with a capacity of 650,000 barrels per day.

It said the high volume of petroleum products from the refinery, located in Lagos, would transform Nigeria from a petrol import-dependent country to an exporter of refined petroleum products.

According to the statement, the company’s plan is to satisfy Nigeria’s demand for petrol, aviation fuel, kerosene and diesel, leaving a surplus for export.

The Group Executive Director, Strategy, Capital Projects and Portfolio Development, DIL, Devakumar Edwin, explained that the refinery was being designed to accommodate multiple grades of domestic and foreign crude, and process them into high-quality petrol, diesel, kerosene, and aviation fuels that would meet Euro V emissions’ specifications, plus polypropylene.

According to him,  the refinery would also include a crude distillation unit, single-train residual fluid catalytic cracking unit, diesel hydro-treating unit, continuous catalyst regeneration unit, alkylation unit, and a polypropylene unit.

“The project will provide thousands of direct and indirect jobs and add value to Nigeria’s economic development. It will lead to significant skills transfer and technology acquisition opportunities in the country,” he added.
