Dangote Group has announced the date for the launch of its much-awaited refineries.
A letter of invitation obtained by DAILY POST indicated that the commissioning would happen on May 22, 2023.
The multi-billion-dollar Oil Refinery and Petrochemical Company is expected to bring solutions to Nigeria’s perennial refining issues.
This could help the federal government’s efforts to make the country self-sufficient in local refining of crude oil to save the scarce foreign exchange used in the importation of petroleum products.
Dangote Refinery, which is the world’s largest single-train refinery, will produce as much as 650,000 barrels per day.
The refinery is said to have been completed with pre-inauguration tests currently ongoing.The Dangote Refinery complex, located in the Lekki Free Zone area of Lagos State, covers a land area of approximately 2,635 hectares, which is larger than the size of Victoria Island in Lagos.
