World’s Largest Atmospheric Tower For Dangote Refinery Sets Sail From China (Pics

A piece of equipment that will process crude oil for Nigeria’s Dangote refinery set sail on Monday from China, oil company Sinopec said in a tweet.

The 650,000 barrel per day (bpd) refinery near Lagos is set to be Africa’s largest and could transform the country from a fuels importer to a net exporter.

“On July 29, the world’s largest atmospheric tower built by Sinopec slowly left a wharf in Ningbo,” the Sinopec tweet said. “Following the Maritime #SilkRoad, it will travel to #Nigeria and be installed at the world’s biggest single-train facility – Nigeria’s Dangote Refinery.”

The atmospheric tower is the primary unit processing crude oil into fuels, Citac analyst. This was disclosed by Jeremy Parker to Reuters. It will likely take at least a month to reach Lagos.
