Located at Lekki Free Zone, Lagos, Nigeria, with an area of 2635 ha, Dangote Oil Refinery project constitutes the construction of an integrated refinery and petrochemical complex.

The refinery is expected to be the world’s largest single oil refinery with capacity of 650000 barrels per day (bpd) to help to reduce Nigeria’s dependence on imported petroleum, with an initial estimated investment around $ 9bn (reviewed: 12 to $ 14bn).

The new refinery would double Nigeria’s refining capacity which will be able to meet Nigeria’s entire domestic fuel demand, as well as export refined products. The refinery will have an annual refining capacity of 10.4 million tonnes (Mt) of gasoline, in addition to 4.6 Mt of diesel and 4 Mt of jet fuel. It will also produce 0.69 Mt of polypropylene, 0.24 Mt of propane, 32,000 ton of sulphur and 0.5 Mt of carbon black feed. The project is also expected to generate 9500 direct and 25000 indirect jobs.
