Oil buyers in Ghana are planning to import petroleum products from Nigeria’s Dangote Oil Refinery once the facility is completed. According to reports, arrangements have been put in place from the buyers to import from the refinery.
The news was revealed at the Ghanaian International Petroleum conference which was held in Accra. Participants at the conference seemed eager for information as to how they could secure supplies from the Dangote refinery.
The Ghananian government expressed the view that dealing with Dangote refinery for petroleum imports would be a better business for African nations than depending on the international market for the supply of refined petroleum products. President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, who was represented by Vice President Alhaji Mahamud Bawumia, said African nations are anxiously waiting for Dangote Refinery as the country would rather import from Nigeria because of its close proximity.
During their visit to the Dangote oil exhibition stand, the Ghanaian Vice-President and the Minister of Energy Hon. Boakye Agyarko were reportedly amazed at the size of the project and expressed satisfaction with the pace of work being done at the refinery. Vice President Bawumia commended Alhaji Aliko Dangote on the initiative which is 100% privately funded and expressed the hope that Ghana would stand to benefit from the project when it is completed.source: Petroleum Africa
