Prometheus Group, 50 ProFlex for DANGOTE Oil Refinery – Nigeria
Dangote refinery is a 650,000 barrels per day (bpd) integrated refinery and petrochemical project under construction in the Lekki Free Zone near Lagos, Nigeria.
Estimated to cost $18bn, the refinery will produce Euro-V quality gasoline and diesel, as well as jet fuel and polypropylene. The project is expected to generate 4,000 direct and 145,000 indirect jobs.
Nigeria is estimated to hold approximately 37 billion barrels of proven oil reserves, the second-largest reserves in Africa. However, the country imports the majority of its refined products due to a lack of domestic refining capacity.
The new refinery will double Nigeria’s refining capacity and help in meeting the increasing demand for fuels while providing cost savings.
Prometheus has joined forces with Biffi to provide the best products from both companies to the new Dangote refinery.
