The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) yesterday said that the Dangote Refinery, currently under construction, would complement Nigeria’s quest of attaining 1.095 million barrels per day self-sufficiency in the refining of petroleum products.

Chief Operating Officer, Upstream, NNPC, Engr. Bello Rabiu, made this known at the ongoing Nigeria Oil and Gas Opportunity Fair (NOGOF) in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. Speaking on ‘Upstream Opportunity in the Oil and Gas Sector’, Rabiu commended the President of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote for his commitment to Nigeria’s downstream sector, adding that “the coming onstream of the Dangote 650,000 barrels-per-day refinery and efforts by NNPC to revamp the country’s refineries in Port Harcourt, Kaduna, and Warri, would help Nigeria to achieve zero importation of refined petroleum products.”

Speaking during a technical session on “Infrastructure as a Key Enabler for Opportunities in the Oil and Gas Sector”, Executive Director, Dangote Group, Ahmed Mansur, said private sector investment and execution capacity in the Nigeria gas sector need to complement government’s efforts in the industry.
