News:- Ghana, Others To Import Fuel From Dangote’s Refinery

Petroleum importing African nations and bulk oil
distributors based in Ghana have expressed eagerness to
patronise the Dangote Oil Refinery Nigerian plant when
production starts.
The oil buyers said arrangements had been put in place to
import petroleum products from the world’s largest single-
train refinery, situated in Lekki, Lagos State and owned by
the foremost industrialist, Aliko Dangote.
Hints of the eager expectation and hopes on the Dangote
Refinery were revealed at this year’s Ghanaian
International Petroleum Conference (Ghipcon 2018), which
held in Accra, Ghana.
According to a statement by the Dangote group,
participants at the conference as well as oil distributors
and marketers from various countries were eager to know
how they could key in for supplies from the 650,000-
barrel-per-day refinery.
The Ghanaian government expressed the view that dealing
with Dangote refinery for petroleum import would be a
better business for African nations than depending on the
international market for the supply of refined products,
adding that “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 Vice President Mahamud Bawumia, said
African nations were anxiously waiting for the Dangote
Refinery and were satisfied with the pace of work being
carried out on the refinery.
