Heavy lifting complete at Dangote refinery

Aerial shots crude column lift 1Originally scheduled to come on stream in 2019, Nigeria’s flagship Dangote refinery project is nearing completion with start up now expected in Q3 2022

This 650,000 barrels per day (bpd) refining facility is expected to redefine Nigeria’s domestic fuels production. Despite being a leading crude oil producer, the West African country has long been dependent on imported fuels to meet domestic demand.

That could be about to change with the new refinery, which is under construction in the Lekki Free Zone near Lagos. The huge project site covers a land area of approximately 2,635 ha, about six times the size of Victoria Island. When it launches, the Dangote refinery is expected to be Africa’s biggest oil refinery and the world’s largest single-train facility.

The scale of the venture brought together a small army of contractors from around the globe to get the job done.
