Countries covered: Nigeria

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.

This report offers a concise overview of the developments in Nigeria's downstream sector and the emerging investment opportunities. No doubt, the Government is vigorously pursuing the deregulation of the downstream sub-sector sector of Nigeria's Oil & Gas. NNPC itself is undergoing structural transformation to enable it position as integrated Oil & Gas Company that is accountable and transparent. Opportunities exist for a wide range of upstream and downstream activities, including exploration, production, pipelines and storage, and for a large range of service companies, including equipment suppliers, providers of petroleum and environmental technical services, consultants, pipeline and storage contractors, banks and others wanting to finance major new developments. The Government's local content policy seeks more integrated, local companies in Nigeria's Oil & Gas sector.

The development of the natural gas industry will create still more large scale projects, including gas processing, pipelines and local distribution. Several gas-fired power stations are currently being implemented while some have been planned. Nigeria could also emerge as a significant regional producer and exporter of LPG. The Petroleum Industry Bill, under legislative consideration, is expected to provide a framework for the structural transformation so much needed in the oil & gas industry.
