The Dangote Refinery yesterday confirmed the registration of three oil marketers’ associations for the distribution of its fuels, mainly diesel and aviation fuel for now.

The company which disclosed this in a post on X, said the distribution groups involved constitute 75 per cent of the total market in the country.

According to Dangote refinery, the three associations so far listed as distributors include: “The Depot and Petroleum Products Marketers Association of Nigeria (DAPPMAN), the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, (IPMAN), and the Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN).

“Three prominent associations, that constitute 75 per cent of the total market in Nigeria have been registered…And we are  also considering other marketers that have signified interest,” the company noted.

Located near Lagos, the Dangote refinery commenced operations last December with 350,000 barrels of oil a day, after receiving an initial 6 million barrels of oil from the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC) and its partners.

The products from the much-awaited largest single-train refinery in the world, excluding petrol, are expected to hit the market within this January, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
