Nigeria’s Dangote Group is set to shake up the Caribbean tanker market with a new terminal project.

Fresh from launching Africa’s biggest refinery near Lagos this year, tycoon Aliko Dangote has said he is planning a facility to export petroleum products into North America.

He told an industry conference in the Bahamas that a new terminal would be able to get oil on tankers to northern ports in 18 to 20 days, according to domestic media and analytics company Kpler.
