650,000 bpd Dangote refinery to Commence Operation in 2019

A new 650,000 barrels per day refinery being built by Africa’s richest man in Nigeria is expected to come on stream by the end of 2019, Nigeria’s Minister of State for Petroleum Resources Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu said on Tuesday.

Construction workers are seen working on a site during a facility tour at the proposed Dangote oil refinery site near Akodo beach in the outskirt of Nigeria’s commercial capital Lagos June 25, 2016

Kachikwu said Africa’s biggest economy was also close to finalizing the process to get private partners to revamp three existing refineries, which would add a cumulative total of 450,000 bpd as Nigeria looks to reduce its dependence on imported refined products.
