Dangote Refinery started production on Friday morning as a gas flare stack was seen at the refinery located in the Lekki Free Zone, Lagos State.

The Dangote Refinery started production after receiving one million barrels of Agbami crude via MT ALMI SUN recently.

The one million barrels of Agbami crude received was the last cargo to complete the initial scheduled 6 million barrels consignment to be delivered to the facility for commencement of production of refined petroleum products.

Initial processing capacity is expected to reach 350,000 barrel per day (bpd) at the 650,000 bpd integrated refinery, with the aim of ramping up to full capacity by the end of the year.
According to information available on the company’s website, the refinery will meet 100% of the Nigerian requirement of all refined products and also have a surplus of each of these products for export.
