Over 10 logistics companies are scrambling to get the nod from Dangote Industries to ferry tons of equipment for use in the construction of a massive Refinery and allied projects in Lagos, Nigeria.
Dangote Industries has ordered some 500,000 Tonnes of Equipment from China and other countries and wants them on site between now and February 2020. The company is running late in the construction of a 650,000Barrel per Stream Day(BSPD) crude oil refinery on the Lekki Port in the east of Lagos.
Around 20 large Vessels are required to transport the equipment, which are needed in the final stages of the construction of a refinery, a fertiliser plant, a petrochemicals plant and other projects, spread over 5,000 acres of reclaimed land, or 2,135 hectares.
The company recently signed a Gas Supply Agreement to receive 70Million standard cubic feet per day of gas from Chevron’s Escravos Gas Project; the molecules will be the foundational feedstock for the fertliser plant, the first of the several projects to go on stream.
