Talk of a man who sees opportunity in strange and dangerous places in Africa, the name Dangote may be within the first 10. Dangote, the richest man in Africa is leaving no stones unturned in making sure that the Dangote Refinery comes to actualization and this time, very soon. Dangote is known as a guru in household items like sugar, salt, cement, noodles and lots more. This time, the billionaire is spreading his tentacles to oil and gas.

While there have been mixed feelings in the sector over the actualization of this dream and if this refinery won't be delay due to the Nigerian factor, the Executive Director Devakumar Edwin, who oversees the project, described the suggestion that the refinery is unlikely to start production until 2022 as the product of “someone’s wild imagination”.



“Ninety-five percent of engineering has been completed, 90 percent of procurement has been completed.” “We started civil works in July last year and we have scheduled 2-1/2 years for mechanical completion,” he said, referring to the point where a plant is ready to be handed over for commissioning.

Aliko Dangote himself had said he hoped to finish building the refinery, which will cost between $12-14 billion in 2019 and to start production in early 2020.

AutoReportNG got some exclusive images and videos from the construction sites and we noticed some giant construction ongoing at the site, they are so massive that ordinary cameras either phone or traditional ones cannot capture its magnificent except drones. It will be a miracle if National Geographic didn't feature this on its documentary channel. Base on the images, we saw that the Temp. Pier & Underwater Pipe Lines Construction is underway about reaching its conclusion, we also a gigantic distillation component. It is learned that the component is one of the biggest in the world as the refinery is billed to start producing petroleum and allied products later this year.

The 650,000 barrel per day (bpd) refinery near Lagos, is Africa’s biggest and is expected to turn Nigeria from an importer of refined products into an exporter, transforming global trade patterns.

These are images and videos AutoReportNG got for you.

In the long term a collosal waste of money.

China, India and Germany have already announced that by the year 2030 which is just 11 years away, they would have fully done away with the use of cars which run on fossil fuels.

Indeed, Sheikh Zaki Yamani, a former Saudi oil minister, once said, “The stone age came to an end not for a lack of stones, and the oil age will end, but not for a lack of oil.”

But Nigerians have never been known for long term strategic thinking or planning.

You guys will suffer the consequences of poor leadership very soon.

The wise ones cashed in on the stones before the stone age ended. The fact that we are transitioning from oil doesn't mean you shouldn't make make hay at sunset. Besides, there are tons of product from crude oil that aren't fuel related.

Sense is required

Cash in on what sunset? Dwindling revenues? Failure to diversify your economic portfolio after 50+ years of independence? Even when it was boom time how did you profit?
Sense is indeed needed, but not where you think.

Petrochemicals (value addition to crude) is part of diversification. It's the easiest and fastest diversification effort we can achieve.

It's private enterprise. The man didn't become a billionaire by accident and not using good judgment

The environmental impact of producing those petrochemicals is even greater than that of just refining crude.
Inventors are already being granted patents for discovering safer alternatives for petrochemicals.

Environmental impact? Are you kidding? All the countries with refineries don't consider or do EIAs? Lmao

Derivatives of crude oil (as varied and diverse as they are) will always be researched. Just like alternatives to everything is equally researched. Doesn't mean you handicap ypur economy and not produce and export what you can sell while you can sell it. Not rocket science

Is this deliberate or actual ignorance at play? I was talking about things to expect in 10 to 20 years time and not the way things are done at the moment.
Of course for the time being, EIA is an indispensible aspect of the petroleum industry, but once that industry no longer exists that will no longer be the case will it? Common sense. Sigh.

Further proof that this fulani heathen led government have no plans for Nigeria.
Imagine siting a refinery very far away from the raw materials.

So after factoring in the cost of transportation of raw materials & other miscellaneous expenses, how much will the fuels produced cost?


The only refinery that should be situated in Afonjaland is a skull refinery where skulls are polished before being exported.
Any other refinery is a scam.

Dangote said he will sell refined oil to Nigerians at international price.

Now my question is where will the oil he will be refining come from?

Will Dangote import crude oil?

Hateful persimist and their hateful rhetorics

Dangote conducted a proper feasibility study and he is going to make tons of dollars on your hateful arsses


A little Q and As

Q:Why didn't he situate it close to south east or south south ? sad

A: SouthEast wants to disentigrate from Nigeria and may be hostile to a northern man's investment and they have no deep-sea port
South-South is currently unsafe for such investment



Q: How will he get oyel since we won't give him our oyel ? sad

A: Oil is an international commodity sold openly on international market




Q: How will he get it since we like blowing pipelines and hijacking ships ? angry

A: Lagos state developed a state own deep sea port at ibeju lekki , so that oil vessel can berth safely to deliver crude cargo
smiley



Q:Since renewable energy is been adopted in some european and north american countries in the next 10 to 20 years who will he sell his products to ? undecided

A: Ships still uses deisel, nitrogen for fertilizers still comes frome crude, Aviation fuel still from crude, cell powered cars are still very expensive to many 3rd world countries due to cost of batteries so do the maths smiley



Q: How will "Afonja" benefit from this? smiley

A: more tax for lagos state aint bad right? Property and land value apreciating overtime, industry springing up close by due to nearness to energy, powerplants springing up due to gass inputs, jobs jobs and more jobs and with the new standard guage coming on stream linking Ogun,Oyo,Lagos together in mins/hrs expect FDI spill overs in these states resulting to even more jobs and higher IGR

Does it mean that an individual is richer than the government of Nigeria? An individual is doing what the government failed to do,an indication of our visionless and wicked leaders who have no sincerity of purpose. We must do away with bad leaders, MUST! Very important for our progress and development.
