Nigeria’s Dangote refinery receives key equipment
LAGOS, January 14, 2019 – The Dangote refinery in Nigeria has taken delivery of the regenerator for the residual fluid catalytic cracker, local media reported Sunday.
“The refinery equipment are coming in semi-finished shape and we will finish the assembling here at the site,” Dangote Oil Refining Company’s head of quality assurance/quality compliance and construction, Rama Putta, told News Agency of Nigeria. He added that the sand filling of the site had been completed.
The Dangote refinery is set to be completed in December 2019. The plant’s expected processing capacity of up to 650,000 bpd is more than the current combined 445,000-bpd capacity of Nigeria’s four state-owned refineries.
