Ghana, other African Countries to import Dangote’s Refined Fuel

Ghana and other African countries have indicated interest in buying refined fuel from Dangote Oil Refinery, when the project is completed.
This was disclosed during this year’s Ghanaian International Petroleum Conference held in Accra, Ghana.

A statement from Dangote Group said the participants in the Conference, particularly distributors and marketers were interested in finding out how to get supply once the refinery begins operation.

The refinery is located at Lekki, Lagos and has capacity for 650,000-barrel-per-day refinery.

The Ghanaian government, according to the statement said it was better for African countries to import fuel from Dangote refinery than relying on the international market for such products.

“We will rather purchase from the Dangote Refinery due to the proximity of the refinery to Ghana and other neighbours.”

President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, who was represented by the Vice President, Mahamud Bawumia was reported to have said that African countries were waiting for Dangote refinery.

Mahamud Bawumia and Minister of Energy, Boakye Agyarko were said to have been excited about the size of the refinery when they visited the Dangote oil exhibition stand during the conference.
