Nigeria to support indigenous oil industry

Proposals in draft nigerian legislation designed to encourage “indigenous” producers looks set to become law. The change will effect the re-licensing some of the more than 300 fields that have been discovered but not yet developed.

It is expected that, the Nigerian company, Oando will be the biggest beneficiary.

Total output in Nigeria’s oil sector, sub-Saharan Africa’s largest, is at about 1.7mb/d at most, cut to just over half of capacity by unrest and funding issues.
