Nigerian Oil: The progressive protectionists

The only progress worth attaining is slow progress. This seems to be the way in Nigeria's oil sector. It is seven years since the Federal Government enacted the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development Act of 2010 – otherwise called the Local Content Act.

Start of the fightback or same old story from oil majors in Nigeria?  

It's been a purple patch for Nigeria's indigenous oil sector of late. After playing second fiddle to the international oil companies for the best part of the sector's history in Nigeria, homegrown talent has been rampant.

What football tells us about Nigeria’s supply concerns

So the latest news from the bigwigs at OPEC is that Nigeria's crude oil production has fallen from 2 million barrels per day to around 1.27 million. This sounds like bad news, anyone can see. And one would be foolish to suggest that a 37.5% decrease in crude production is a welcome shift for our oil ...

Nigeria says 'Power to the people!'

Like many working in the oil and gas sector in Nigeria, I am crossing my fingers that much-needed new legislation will be passed in the days ahead.
