There are significant investment opportunities in Nigeria's down-stream sector of the Oil & Gas Industry. The focus of Government is the deregulation of the sector through the licensing of private refineries and the removal of Government subsidies to the downstream sector, and the privatization of existing ones. It is hoped that domestic capacity, through such strategic action would at least meet demand. The 4 existing refineries have significantly and consistently produced below capacity, caused by a host of factors, least of which is poorly managed Turn-Around Maintenance routine.

The Government has shown commitment towards jumpstarting a 'gas revolution' with the approval of 'central gas processing facilities'.There are significant investment opportunities that are looking for funding, both local and international.
