The Ɗangote Refinery on Thursday, received another one million barrels of crude oil, increasing its total deliveries to about three million barrels.

Chairman of Ɗangote Group, Aliko Ɗangote, had earlier confirmed that the refinery will fully come on stream, processing 650, 000 barrels per day by the end of 2024.

He had said: “We do not want to start our refinery with foreign goods; we want to start with Nigerian crude. We’re more than ready and you will see our gasoline products soon”.

The Ɗangote Refinery has the capacity to meet 100 percent of Nigeria’s domestic demand for gasoline, diesel, kerosene, aviation jet, as well as export to the global market.

The coming on stream of the refinery is expected to create many multiplier effects, especially jobs, suppliers, capacity-building, empowerment and technology-transfer to Nigerians.
