The Dangote Refinery and Petrochemicals business, which is situated in Lagos’ Lekki free trade zone, is on fire.
At the time of reporting, the cause of the fire outbreak could not be determined.
Anthony Chiejina, the company’s Group Head of Corporate Communications, confirmed the incident on Wednesday afternoon, stating that a little fire broke out in the effluent treatment plant.

“We have swiftly contained a minor fire incident at our effluent treatment plant (ETP), today Wednesday 26th of June. There is no cause for alarm as the refinery is operating and there is no recorded injury or body harm to all our staff on duty,” he said.

With a daily total production of 650,000 barrels per day, the Dangote Petroleum Refinery started producing aviation fuel and diesel in January. The first delivery of crude oil took place on December 12, 2023, and the sixth shipment arrived on January 8.

The company received an extra one million barrels of bright light crude from the Nigeria National Petroleum Company (NNPC Ltd.), marking a step closer to the start of refined petroleum product manufacturing.
