Dangote Refinery to receive its fifth and sixth crude oil shipments to Nigeria 

World’s largest single-train refinery, the Dangote Refinery and Petrochemical Company has revealed that its fifth and sixth crude oil shipments from oil producers in Nigeria would arrive between today and January 6, barring any unforeseen circumstances that may cause delay.

The fifth one million barrels of crude consignment out of the six shipments earmarked for supply to the facility would arrive the refinery between today and tomorrow (Thursday), while the sixth one million barrels’ shipment would be received on January 6.

The company had on Monday announced receipt of the fourth one million barrels crude cargo of Bonny Light grade from the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL).

However, with four crude cargoes of combined four million barrels now successfully supplied, Dangote Group is now some inches away from starting refining operations at its 650,000 barrels per day (bpd) Lagos-based refinery.

The now-awaited two consignments of one million barrels of crude each would be the last to be delivered to the Dangote facility out of the six million barrels of crude being expected by the Aliko Dangote-owned refinery.
