Aliko Dangote Plans to Acquire Stake in Shell Nigeria’s Gas Field



Aliko Dangote - Bloomberg Billionaires  Index - January 2014 - BellaNaija

Africa’s Richest Man Aliko Dangote is taking over the Nigerian business world, one step at a time.

According to African Intelligence, the Nigerian tycoon is planning to acquire a stake in a Nigerian gas field owned by Shell.

His company, Dangote Industries reportedly submitted the highest bid for the Anglo-Dutch multinational energy company’s stake in Oil Mining Lease (OML) 18 at an auction last year. The amount set aside by Dangote for the bid as well and the stake to be acquired, isn’t revealed.

Forbes’ Mfonobong Nsehe reports that this isn’t the first time Aliko Dangote made an attempt to acquire a stake in the company. He lost to Conoil Producing in 2010 in a bid for a 45% stake on OML 30.

    Bullying your way much? This is what happens when they list ppl on Forbes list. All of a sudden it’s a competition to get to the top and everything is fair game. Isn’t it enough that you’ve got a monopoly on a lot of stuff already? Greedy heffa.

    Hello bella. Please advice blog visitors about a fraudster that calls people claiming to be Mr Daniel the CPA Nigeria Immigration Service.

    He will even call your name and tell you where you serve. He will tell the person that due to the cancellation of the last immigration exercise that they now pick name randomly and your name was selected.

    Please blog visitors should not fall prey to his antics. I pray the law catches up with him soon.
