The Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiatives (NEITI), says Nigeria earned 21 billion dollars from the oil and gas sector in 2017.
NEITI disclosed this in its 2017 oil and gas industry report released in Abuja on Wednesday.
It said that the figure showed a 23 per cent increase from the 2016 figures of 17.05 per cent billion dollars and 15 per cent lower than 24.79 billion dollars inflows recorded in 2015.
A breakdown of the financial flows by revenue streams showed that crude oil and gas sales topped the table with about 10.19 billion dollars, while other financial flows accounted for about 10.13 billion dollars.
“In a five – year comparison of revenue flows from the oil and gas sector, the report revealed that there was a steady decline in year-on-year revenues from 2013 to 2016, with the sharpest drop of 55 per cent in 2015 compared to the preceding year.
“The year under review experienced a 23 per cent increase in revenues, 23 per cent from 17.055 billion dollars in 2016 to 20.988 billion dollars in 2017,’’ it said
According to the report, , 2017 witnessed a halt in the steady revenue decline the sector has been experiencing since 2013.
The report also showed that inflows from the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) as dividend, interest and loan repayment were 834 million dollars.
This, it said indicated a significant increase of 114 per cent from the 2016 figures of 390 million dollars.
On oil production during the period under review, a marginal increase of 4.75 per cent (690,465 mbbls) as against the 659,137 mbbls produced in 2016 was recorded.
It noted that the significant increase in revenues when compared to the increase in production volumes was as a result of the increase in oil prices.
The report further pointed out that average crude oil price was higher in 2017 and was sold for an average of 54.44 dollars as against the 43.73 dollars in 2016, and this signified an increase of 24.5 per cent.
“Out of the 690,465 mbbls of crude oil produced in 2017, a total of 688,291 mmbls was lifted , representing an increase from the 668,147 mmbls lifted in 2016,’’ it added
The NEITI report also showed that NNPC lifted a total of 241 million barrels (mbbls) of crude oil on behalf of the federation.
A breakdown of the liftings show that federation exports accounted for 135 million barrels, while the domestic crude liftings accounted for 106 million barrels.
It further disclosed that the federation exports volume went down by 36 per cent from 211 mbbls in 2016 to 135 mbbls in 2017.
It noted that While liftings by the companies amounted to 447 mbbls, joint venture operations, production sharing contracts and sole risk operators accounted for 130 mbbls, 223 mbbls and 79 million barrels respectively.
It said that the marginal field and service contract operators lifted 15mbbls and 1mbbls during the year under review
On crude allocation for domestic use, the report indicated that in 2017, the NNPC allocated 105.925 mbbls for domestic, while 25 per cent of this quantity was supplied to the refineries, 69 per cent was on the other hand utilised for the Direct Sales and Direct Purchase arrangement.
On production arrangements in terms of volumes, joint ventures (JVs) and production sharing contracts produced 305 mbbls and 303 mbbls.
It added that others such as service contracts, marginal fields and sole risks accounted for the balance.
“Sole Risk operations produced the highest percentage increase of 114 per cent, and Marginal Field operations witnessed an increase of 32 per cent in the year under review.
“Overall production from the JV companies increased by 16.199 mbbls, indicating a six per cent increase from 2016 volumes.
“On the contrary, PSC and SC operations suffered volume reductions of six per cent and 31 per cent respectively,” it added.
On Gas production, it said that the total gas production was 3,494,774 mmscf from all arrangements, slightly higher than 2016 production of 3,051,249 mmscf by 15 per cent.
It noted that the total volume of gas flared in 2017 increased by 23 per cent, while gas utilisation saw a significant jump of 32 per cent when compared to 2016 volumes.
The report also said 8.474 billion dollars was budgeted for Cash Call obligations, but only 49 per cent or 4.13 billion dollars was paid as at January 2018.
It said that out of the 5.125 billion dollars negotiated as outstanding cash call liabilities for 2016, 2.177 billion dollars was paid, therefore, leaving a balance of 2.948 billion dollars.
It further observed that 2017 witnessed a huge drop in crude oil theft, sabotage and deferred production.
“Nigeria lost about 36.5mbbls of crude oil to theft and sabotage and there was 69mbbls lost due to decrease in production volumes resulting from routine maintenance or unplanned repairs of the production facilities.
“This is regarded as a remarkable improvement particularly, when compared to the 2016 figures of 101mbbls and 144mbbls lost to theft and deferred production respectively,’’ it said.
NEITI also noted that there was reduction in pipeline breaks in 2017 (924 breaks) when compared to the figures of the previous years (2013-3,571; 2014-3,732; 2015-2,832 and 2016-2,589 breaks).
This decline, it said suggested a positive return on the actions taken to mitigate vandalism.
The report further added that the oil and gas sector contributed 8.68 per cent to Nigeria’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
The 2017 NEITI oil and gas report covered 63 entities. These include seven government agencies, 12 joint venture companies, 13 production sharing contract companies and 16 marginal field operators.

NNPC declares N5.20b trading surplus in August
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said it made ₦5.20billion trading surplus for the month of August, reflecting an increase of 22 per cent compared with the ₦4.26 billion surplus posted in July.
The corporation disclosed this in its Monthly Financial and Operations Report (MFOR) for the month of August released in Abuja on Sunday.
It attributed the appreciable increase of 22 per cent within the period under review to largely the improved surplus posted by the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC).
It explained that the percentage increase in performance of the company evened out with the decline in the performance of Nigeria Gas Company (NGC) vis-à-vis July figures.
It added that the increased surplus posted by Duke Oil and the reduced deficit by the Nigerian Pipelines and Storage Company (NPSC) equally bolstered the figures for the month, according to the report.
A summary of NNPC’s Group Operating Revenue and Expenditure for the month under review indicated that it increased by 7.58 per cent at ₦540.60billion, reflecting an increase of ₦38.10billion compared with the previous month’s performance.
It further added that the expenditure for the month followed a similar trend with increase of 7.46 per cent or ₦37.16billion, to reach ₦535.40billion during the month under review.
It declared that the proportion of expenditure to revenue was almost at par for the current month as well as in July 2019.
In the Downstream Sector of the corporation’s operations, the report noted that ₦233.42billion was made on the sale of white products by the Petroleum Products Marketing Company (PPMC), the Downstream subsidiary of the NNPC in August compared to ₦214.70 billion sales in July.
“Total revenues generated from the sales of white products for the period August 2018 to August 2019 stood at ₦2,687.29billion, with PMS contributing about 95.19 per cent of the total sales valued at ₦2,558.13billion.
“Volume wise, 1.917billion litres of white products were sold and distributed by PPMC in the month under review, compared with 1.744billion litres in July 2019.
“This comprised 1.92billion litres of PMS and 0.00030billion litres of Automotive Gas Oil, otherwise called diesel.
“Total sale of white products for the period: August 2018 to August 2019 stood at 21.49billion litres, with PMS accounting for 20.82billion litres or 96.9 per cent,” it said
In the Gas Sector, it said that out of the 1,174.97million Standard Cubic Feet (mmscfd) of gas supplied to the domestic market in August, about 666.15mmscfd of gas representing 56.69 per cent was supplied to Gas-Fired power plants.
According to the report, the balance of 508.82mmscfd or 43.31 per cent was supplied to other industries.
“Similarly, for the period: August 2018 to August 2019, an average of 1,211.08mmscfd of gas was supplied to the domestic market, comprising an average of 723.77mmscfd or 59.76 per cent as gas supply to power and 482.32mmscfd or 40.24 per cent as gas supply to industries,” the report revealed.
Nigeria News Agency reports that the report is the 49th edition of the corporation’s publication.
NCDMB says 70 per cent Nigerian content by 2027 still achievable
Mr Simbi Wabote, the Executive Secretary, Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB), says the board’s 10-year plan to achieve 70 per cent Nigerian content in the oil and gas sector remains realisable.
Wabote, represented by Dr Gina Gina, General Manager, Corporate Communications at NCDMB, spoke at a workshop for media stakeholders in South-South region on Friday in Port Harcourt.
According to him, the board plans to retain the services of Nigerians in providing goods and services by growing capacity and competencies, where 20 billion dollars is spent annually.
He said that the Federal Government was using the local content policy target to ensure that citizens derived more value from the sector.
The executive secretary further said that the board had grown Nigerian content from about five per cent before establishment of NCDMB in 2010 to 30 per cent in 2019.
He said that on assumption of duty in 2017, the board under his watch set the 70 per cent target for a 10-year period.
“The aim is to drive a process of ensuring that at least 14 billion dollars of the 20 billion dollars spent annually in the sector is retained in the country,’’ Wabote said.
He said that NCDMB’s efforts in growing the capacity of indigenes in the oil and gas sector reduced the number of expatriates by at least 1,000, which also reduced capital flight.
He further said that the agency had achieved financial autonomy by ensuring that indigenous companies were given priority in contracts by International Oil Companies through its monitoring mechanism.
Also, Prof. Godwin Okon, of the Department of Mass Communication, River State University, spoke on “Evolving trends in media reportage and improving writing competence of Energy Correspondents.’’
Okon said that society relied on the mass media to understand the complexities of the oil sector.
He said that the communication skills of the reporter should be deployed to interpret and make oil and gas sector meaningful to the average Nigerian.

He said that the role of the media in highlighting opportunities in the sector could fast track the attainment of the 70 per cent Nigerian Content target by 2027.
Earlier in his opening remarks, Mr Naboth Onyesoh, Manager, Corporate Communications said that the Nigerian Content policy had become imperative because of its cost advantage as opposed to relying on foreign interests.
Onyesoh said that although the sector was dependent on advanced technology, the NCDM had provided a platform for Nigerians to participate in projects that are hitherto undertaken by foreign concerns.
He sought for continued collaboration with the media to showcase the opportunities created by NCDMB for indigenes in the oil and gas sector.
He said that it would help to ensure the attainment of the 70 per cent Nigerian content target.

NNPC, JVs sign Gas Supply Agreements on NLNG Trains 1, 2, 3, 7
The Nigeria National Petroleum Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and its joint Venture (JV) partners have signed the first basic 20-year term of Gas Supply Agreements (GSAs) for the NLNG Train 7.
They also signed 10-year term of GSAs for Trains 1, 2 and 3.
The JV partners are Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria (SPDC), Total Exploration and Production Nigeria (TEPNG), Nigerian Agip Oil company Limited (NAOC) and Oando PLC.
The Group Managing Director of NNPC, Malam Mele Kyari, said that the agreement signalled commitment of all to the gas project in the country.
He said that the GSAs bring NLNG closer to taking Final Investment Decision (FID) which signalled the commencement of the project.
He said that with the agreement, the FID on train seven would be taken latest Dec. 20.
“The Train 7 project will ramp up NLNG’s production capacity from 22 Million Tonnes Per Annum (MTPA) to around 30 MTPA.
“The project will form part of the investment of over19 billion dollars including the upstream scope of the NLNG value chain, thereby boosting the much needed FID profile of Nigeria.
“The project is anticipated to create over 10,000 new jobs during its construction phase and on completion help to further mop more gas that would have been flared and diversify the revenue portfolio of Nigeria,” he said.
The Managing Director of Shell, Mr Osagie Okunbor, said that delivering gas to train 7 was an important part of the project.
He said Nigeria at this point should not be talking about train 7 but should be looking at train eight to train 12.
“But what we have done here today is very significant and we believe that more will be done in the future,” he said
Also, Patrick Olima of Total assured that the company would be committed to the supply of gas as signed in the agreement.
“We are committed in doing business in Nigeria just like we have done with Egina FPSO, we will do same with this project,” he said.
Mr Wale Tinubu, Managing Director of Oando, reiterated that his company would be committed to the agreement.
“We are happy to be part of this process,” he said.
In his remarks, Mr Tony Attah, the Managing Director of NLNG, said that signing of the agreement was a great moment for the NLNG.
He said that with FID on train 7, Nigeria was moving in the right direction.
“What we have done today is among the top three things needed before the FID is taken; without this, financiers will not come for train 7.
“We are happy with the commitment of the partners that have signed this agreement today; this agreement will further consolidate our relationship.
“We need to move fast as a country to maintain a strong position in the global space.
“Nigeria at this stage should not be talking only about train 7 but we should be talking about Train 12,” he said.
He added that with full implementation of the GSA would spur NLNG to build more trains.

DPR aligns with ministerial mandate for oil, gas sector – Shakur
The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) says it has aligned its deliverables with the ministerial mandate for the oil and gas sector in Nigeria.
Mr Paul Osu, Head, Public Affairs, DPR in a statement issued on Friday in Lagos said the agency’s Director, Mr Rufai Shakur, made this known at the DPR Strategic Management Retreat in Abuja.
Shakur said the objective of the retreat was to cascade down the ministerial mandate to all staffers of the agency.
He said it was also to enable DPR provide the necessary regulatory oversight for the oil and gas sector and achieve the next level agenda of the government.
Shakur said the ministerial deliverables include eradication of smuggling of petrol across Nigerian borders and complete gas flare commercialisation programme.
According to him, they also include increase in crude oil production to three million barrels, reduction in the cost of oil extraction, promoting the passage of the petroleum industry bill, increasing domestic refining capacity and creating jobs for Nigerian youths.
He said that the strategic management retreat would further assist the DPR to sustain the tempo of ongoing reforms in the agency, which was geared toward aligning with the agency’s vision of being a world class regulatory agency.
Shakur tasked the top management of the agency to ensure total alignment of their divisions and zones to the ministerial deliverables as it had been embedded into the DPR’s corporate strategy.
Also, Chief Timipre Sylva, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, who was the special guest commended DPR for the retreat.
Sylva noted that there must be a shared vision by all players in the industry for progress to be achieved.
He emphasised that the ministerial deliverables must cascade down to all staff as it was the duty of everyone to ensure the success of the mandate.
The minister recalled that the deliverables was a product of the ministerial retreat he had earlier in the year, and reiterated that DPR, being the core of the oil and gas sector of Nigeria, must ensure the successful delivery of the mandate.
He enjoined the department to swing into action as he had dubbed 2020 the year to deliver and begin the actualisation of the oil and gas industry roadmap.

Buhari tasks APPO member countries to be objective in decision making
President Muhammadu Buhari has called on African Petroleum Producers Association (APPO) member countries to be objective in taking decision for the growth of the oil and gas industry in the continent.
Buhari made the call while declaring open APPO Council of Ministers meeting in Abuja on Thursday.
The president was represented by the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva.
“I understand that Nigeria has completed its assignment and is ready to submit final report to the Council of Ministers. As APPO ministers meet to deliberate on the report today, I urge you all to be objective and put the general interest of all above the interest of one.
“You have very important decision to take, decisions that may make or mar the organisation.
“I urge you all to look beyond particular or regional interests to the general interest. “I urge you to dispassionately discuss the issues and take decision that will strengthen APPO,’’ he said.
He also tasked the group to take good decisions on the recapitalisation of its development arm, renamed as African Energy Investment Corporation (AEICORP).
According to him, the reform of APPO has been extended to AEICORP, noting that a lot of recommendation made to APPO ministers has been approved.
“Among the changes introduced are the opening up of equity ownership to private and financial institutions.“
Others, he said, were recapitalisation of equity to one billion dollars and establishment of a new Board of Directors with membership from both private and public sector.
“In other words, AEICORP shall not be solely owned by sovereign countries of APPO anymore.’’
The president noted that the importance of AEICORP could not be over emphasised, given the global paradigm shift from oil as energy source and at the time when more oil and gas were found in Africa.
“Without the required funds, these oil reserves will remain in the ground and un-accessed while people go without energy.
“Africa has 600 million out of the 850 million people in the world who do not have access to modern energy. We need to exploit what we have to take our people out of the energy poverty and by extension, economic poverty.’’
Buhari further urged member countries to make equity subscription to AEICORP, to ensure consequential investment by Sovereign Wealth Funds, National Oil companies or any other designate member or non member of APPO.
In his remarks, Mr Mahaman Gaya, APPO Secretary-General, commended Nigeria for the role it played in ensuring that APPO existed and for hosting the meeting.
He said that there was the need for APPO to strategise to support the growth of the oil and gas sector in the continent.
According to him, leaders of the member countries must show political will to support the various decisions of the organisaation while stakeholders in the industry must also support APPO.
“We must make every effort to support APPO to thrive so that African countries would develop with the wealth of oil reserve in the region,’’ he said
Earlier, speaking in his capacity as the Minister of State Petroleum Resource, Sylva said that Nigeria had completed the assignment on implementation of reforms given to it by APPO Council of Ministers resolution No. 268 of April 2, 2019 at Malabo.
He said that it would submit its final report to the council of minister for consideration and approval.
“Some of the key decisions expected to be taken at this meeting include the choice of host country for APPO Headquarters and the selection of a new Secretary-General and some Key officers of APPO Secretariat.’’
According to him, the recapitlisation of the AEICORP will also be part of the major decision to be taken at the meeting.
“It is my hope that this honourable council will consider every issue objectively, taking the interest of this organisation above personal or country consideration.
“We must bear in mind that whatever decision we take at this meeting will have direct impact on the existence or otherwise of this organisation,’’ he said
provide platform for cooperation, collaboration and knowledge sharing among African oil producing countries.
The APPO member countries are: Nigeria, Algeria, Angola, Benin, Cameroon, Congo, Equitorial Guinea, Libya, Niger, Côte d’Ivoire, Mauritania, Sudan, Garbon, Chad,Egypt, Ghana, DR Congo and South Africa.
