This refinery with a capacity of 650,000 bpsd is higher than the total demand of Nigeria, thus catapulting Nigeria from a net importer of petroleum products to a net exporter of petroleum products,” he said.

What you should know: On July 29, the world’s largest atmospheric tower built by Sinopec, China’s leading energy and chemical company slowly left a wharf in Ningbo, China for the shores of Lagos in Africa’s biggest economy, Nigeria.

According to experts, the primary purpose of the atmospheric distillation tower is to separate crude oil into its components (or distillation cuts, distillation fractions) for further processing by other processing units.

It took 14 months for the crude oil processor to be constructed by Sinopec in China and eight weeks to bring it to Nigeria.
