Dangote Refinery Gets First Crude Oil Shipment, To Receive Another In Three Weeks

Dangote Refinery has received its first million barrels of Agbami crude grade from Shell International Trading and Shipping Company Limited (STASCO), marking a significant step toward strengthening Nigeria’s domestic refining capacity.


The Dangote Refinery said in a Friday statement that the shipment sailed to the facility’s Single-Point Mooring (SPM), where it was dumped into the refinery’s crude oil tanks.


According to the company, the initial one million barrels of crude supply, which represents the first phase of the six million barrels to be supplied to its refinery by several suppliers, should be enough to sustain the initial 350 thousand barrels per day required for the facility’s crude production to begin.


Meanwhile, the business stated that the next four cargoes will be delivered by the Nigeria National Petroleum business Limited (NNPCL) in two to three weeks, with ExxonMobil supplying the final of the six cargoes.
