Dangote Refinery Takes Delivery Of Gigantic Distillation Component

Dangote Refinery has just taken delivery of this distillation component. It is one of the biggest in the world. The Refinery is billed to start cracking later this year.

Owned by the Dangote Group, the refinery is situated on a 6,180 acres (2,500 hectares) site and will process about 650,000 barrels of crude oil daily, transported via pipelines from oil fields in the Niger Delta, where natural gas will also be sourced to supply the fertilizer factory and be used in electrical generation for the refinery complex. The project is expected to cost up to $15 billion in total, with $10 billion invested in the refinery, $2.5 billion in the fertilizer factory, and $2.5 billion in pipeline infrastructure.
