Nigeria’s Dangote oil refinery has received its next one-million-barrel crude oil cargo from Shell International Trading and Shipping Company Limited (STASCO), bringing the total to two million barrels at the facility’s Single-Point Mooring.
The latest shipment supports the refinery’s phased plan to receive a total of six million barrels from various sources to support its 650,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) capacity. Subsequent shipments will be provided by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and ExxonMobil.
The refinery, gearing up to commence operations at 350,000 bpd, is scheduled to start production of diesel and aviation fuel in January 2024. However, the need for additional crude oil supply is causing delays in petrol production.
