According to Hyundai, each cylindrical tank will be eight metres in diameter and 95 metres in length. With the project, both Nigeria and South Korea hope to enhance the business ties between them.

Dangote Refinery is building a 2,200 ha of oil refinery and petrochemical complex in the Lekki Free Zone near Lagos.

After being completed in 2019, the refinery is expected to produce Euro-V quality gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and polypropylene and set to appear as the largest single-train facility around the world.

The new refinery is expected to double Nigeria’s current refining capacity and help in addressing the increasing demand for fuels. The location in Lekki aims to enable easy shipment of refined petroleum products to the global marketplaces.
