French energy leader TotalEnergies has announced a significant milestone in its operations, sealing a vital supply agreement with Nigeria’s renowned Dangote Refinery. The deal, disclosed by TotalEnergies CEO Patrick Pouyanne at the Africa CEO Forum in Kigali, Rwanda, marks a pivotal moment for both entities.

At the heart of this agreement lies Dangote Refinery’s ambitious plans to secure crude supplies for its expansive operations. With a capacity of 650,000 barrels per day (bpd), the refinery aims to transform Nigeria’s refining sector and reduce its reliance on imported fuels.

In a bid to fulfill its vision, Dangote Refinery issued a tender for two million barrels of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) Midland crude monthly, starting July and spanning a year. This move underscores the refinery’s commitment to bolstering Africa’s energy independence.

Since commencing operations in January, the $20 billion refinery has made significant strides, producing jet fuel and diesel with gasoline production slated for the near future. Aliko Dangote, the visionary behind the refinery, emphasized its potential not only to meet domestic demand but also to serve as a key export hub, catering to markets across Africa and beyond.

With plans for further expansion already on the horizon, Dangote Refinery aims to solidify its position as a regional energy powerhouse, capable of supplying West, Central, and Southern Africa with essential fuel products.

For TotalEnergies, this partnership signifies a strategic move to bolster its presence in Nigeria’s dynamic energy sector. Alongside industry heavyweights like Shell, Exxon, and Chevron, TotalEnergies plays a critical role in Nigeria’s crude production landscape.

As both entities move forward, the focus now shifts to the tangible impacts this collaboration will have on Nigeria’s energy landscape and the broader African continent.
