Dangote Refinery Export Jet Fuel to Europe

Dangote Refinery For Commissioning Today

Dangote Refinery, the largest oil refinery in Africa has reached a major milestone with its first shipment of jet fuel to Europe.

The achievement marks another milestone for the complex, which has rapidly increased production since its launch in April 2023.

On May 27, the “Doric Breeze” vessel departed from Lagos’ Lekki Free Zone, carrying the inaugural shipment, currently en route to the Netherlands’ Rotterdam.

BP received the 45,000-metric-ton cargo as part of the refinery’s 120,000-metric-ton tender, with Cepsa securing a portion and expected to deliver to the continent soon.

The shipment follows Dangote’s export of six jet fuel/kerosene cargoes to Senegal, Togo, and Ghana, with plans to begin exporting gasoline in June and ultra-low sulfur diesel to Europe by Q3.

While Dangote has exported naphtha, fuel oil, and gasoil to various markets, naphtha exports may decrease to prioritize gasoline production.

Since April, Dangote has exported around four naphtha cargoes monthly to Europe, which may be reduced to boost domestic supplies once the fluid catalytic cracker is operational.
