Aliko Dangote, president of Dangote Group, has assured Nigerians that when his refinery is ready, the country would no longer need to import petroleum products. The refinery would lower the prices of petroleum products in Nigeria and save some costs on importation when completed.
The refinery will have the capacity to refine 650,000 barrels of crude oil per day while the petrochemical plant will produce 780 KTPA Polypropylene, 500 KTPA of Polyethylene while the fertilizer project will produce 3.0 million metric tonnes per annum of Urea.
The 650,000-barrels-per-day refinery will come on stream by September 2019. Work has been ongoing on the proposed site at Ibeju Lekki area which is very close to the Eko Atlantic site.
