The fertilizer plant will be ready for commercial production 2021 according Saipem SpA, the builders.
The fertiliser plant had initially been slated to begin production in May this year 2020.
Test runs started at the plant in March, though hampered by the disruptions that came with the some circumstances beyond their control, the Chief Operating Officer of Saipem SpA, Maurizio Coratella, told news agents.
“We are picking up now that things are looking more stable and are currently very well advanced,” Coratella said in an interview.
“We are in the commissioning stage of the first train; for the second, we will have that commissioning in six to seven months time.”
Dangote is making special arrangements, including setting up dedicated flights for vendors and suppliers to enable it to meet the completion deadline, he said.
The refinery will create more than one million new jobs from industries producing petroleum naphtha, gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, kerosene, liquefied petroleum gas, jet fuel and fuel oils and petrochemicals feed stock like ethylene and propylene.
