Dangote Petrochemical Complex To Boost Nigeria’s Power Supply By 12,000MW

The world’s largest subsea gas pipeline infrastructure, being built by Dangote Refinery, is set to rescue the country from epileptic power supply, as it would provide 12,000 additional megawatts of electricity to the national grid.

The gas pipeline, which is about 1,100 kilometres long, is to handle 3 billion standard cubic feet (scf) of gas per day, and would serve as alternative to the troubled Ecravos – Lagos pipeline, which supplies power plants in the entire western Niger Delta, where majority of the nation’s power plants are located.

Aliko Dangote, President of Dangote Group, who disclosed this during the visit of the minister of State for Petroleum, Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, to Dangote Refinery at Ibeju -Lekki in Lagos yesterday, also disclosed that the company plans to construct a 570 megawatts power plant .

“As a matter of fact, gas supply from our gas facility will augment the natural domestic gas supply and we estimate that additional 12,000 mw of power generation can be added to the grid,” he said.
