Nigeria’s 650kbpd Dangote refinery has started production, Argus reported in mid-January, while gasoline production is expected to start end-March, Dangote Chief Executive, Aliko Dangote said, cited by the Guardian.

  • “Our refinery has kicked off the refining of crude oil with Automotive Gas Oil (AGO) and JETA1 fuel as initial products. We expect gasoline and polypropylene by the end of March. We believe that Nigeria’s dependence on imported refined petroleum products will be eliminated very soon”, the company’s chief said.
