Dangote Petroleum Refinery has confirmed that it has received the fifth crude oil shipment of one million barrels of Bonny Light supplied by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd (NNPCL).

The company said in a statement on Friday that it received the shipment on Thursday.

Persecond News reports that this latest development is a significant step for the refinery, which is already preparing to welcome the 6th one million crude oil cargo by next week as it hopes to begin operations.

“The crude oil cargo being the fifth consignment to be delivered to the Dangote Petroleum Refinery facility out of the six million barrels of crude being expected, arrived at the Single Point Mooring (SPM)-C2 Dangote Offshore Oil Terminal on Thursday and has already been discharged to the refinery’s crude oil tanks,” the company said.

Persecondnews recalls that Dangote Refinery had earlier received over 3.9 million barrels of crude.

The Managing Director of Dangote Ports Operations, Mr. Akin Omole, had told newsmen at the Dangote Quay, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos, that the refinery would receive about four million crude shipment before the end of 2023 and the remaining two by early January 2024.

Once the 6 million barrels are fully delivered, it will facilitate the initial run of the refinery as well as kick-start the production of diesel, aviation fuel, and LPG before subsequently progressing to the production of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) known as petrol.
