Dangote Refinery Announces Date To Commence Diesel, JetA1 Production


Dec 11, 2023

After several failed commencement dates, the Dangote Petroleum Refinery has revealed that it will kick-start producing Automotive Gas Oil, also known as diesel, and JetA1 or aviation fuel in January 2024.

However, the company would delay petrol production commencement pending crude oil supply.

It was gathered at the weekend that the facility would require a minimum of six million barrels of crude oil to kick-start the full production of refined petroleum products, including AGO, PMS, Jet A1, and Dual Purpose Kerosene, otherwise called kerosene.

The development comes as the company had hinted to commence operation in October this year.
