President Muhammadu Buhari will on Monday commission the 650,000 BPD Dangote Petroleum Refinery and Petrochemicals.
According to a Twitter statement by the Dangote Group, the refinery will be churning out Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), diesel (AGO), aviation jet fuel and Dual-Purpose Kerosene (DPK), among other refined products.
Speaking about the magnificent plant, the CEO Dangote Petroleum Refinery and Petrochemicals, Sanjay Gupta, stated that “everything in this plant by way of size is the first. It is the largest single-train refinery in the world.
“There is no single column which can process 650,000 barrels per day anywhere else,” he humbly boasted.
The Special Assistant to the President on Digital and New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi in a tweet earlier in January noted that the “Dangote Refinery and Petrochemical complex in Lekki sits on land that is more than 3 times the size of Victoria Island”.
He added that the fertilizer plant was already producing.
