He said:

"NNPC owns 20% of Dangote Refinery and has first right of refusal to provide crude oil to the plant.
"However, we anticipated this energy transition difficulty." That implies we have locked in the ability to sell crude oil for 33,000 barrels minimum by right for the next 20 years, as well as access to 20% of the output from that plant."

Kyari further stated that the Dangote Refinery will begin production by the middle of next year and will be capable of generating up to 50 million litres of fuel.

He added:

"The combination of that plus our ability to reopen our refinery will result in no petroleum product imports into this country next year." "There would be no imports into this nation next year."
"This is quite useful. When we finish our refineries and the Dangote plant, there will be additional little projects, such as the construction of tiny modular condensate refineries. If that happens, which we are extremely certain will happen, this country will become a net exporter.
