A million barrels of crude oil have arrived, according to Dangote Refinery.In order to start producing fuel, the Dangote Oil Refinery verified on Friday that the first million barrels of crude had arrived.

Dangote Refinery's acquisition of the Agbami Crude grade from Shell International Trading and Shipping Company Limited (STASCO) served as confirmation of this.

A million barrels from Agbami were in the STASCO cargo, which was shipped to the Dangote Refinery's Single Point Mooring (SPM) and then emptied into the refinery's crude oil tanks, according to the statement.

"The initial 350,000 barrels per day to be processed by the facility should be sustained by the first one million barrels, which constitute the first phase of the six million barrels of crude oil to be delivered to Dangote Petroleum Refinery by a range of suppliers.

"In two to three weeks, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) will supply the next four cargoes, and ExxonMobil will supply the last of the six cargoes.

"This supply will help the refinery start up and kick-start the production of LPG, diesel, and aviation fuel before moving on to the production of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS)."

"This most recent development will be crucial in mitigating the fuel supply issues that Nigeria and the other West African countries are facing."

The business stated that the 650,000 barrels per day Dangote Petroleum Refinery, which is designed to process 100% Nigerian crude, can also process most African crude grades, Middle Eastern Arab Light, even US Light tight oil, and crude from other nations.

The statement claims that the Dangote Petroleum Refinery is able to supply all of Nigeria's needs for refined products, including aviation jet, diesel, gasoline, and kerosene, and that it also has excess supplies of all of these items for export.

According to Dangote, the refinery was designed to accept crude through two SPMs that are 25 kilometers offshore and to release petroleum products through three additional SPMs.

Furthermore, the refinery's truck loading gantries can load 2,900 trucks every day.

The self-sufficient maritime infrastructure at Dangote Refinery can handle the largest vessel in the world. Furthermore, every product that leaves the refinery will meet Euro V requirements.

The refinery's design also complies with African Refiners and Distribution Association (ARDA) standards, European emission standards, US EPA emission standards, and Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) emission/effluent regulations.
