In Nigeria's Oil & Gas industry, there is a substantial amount of investment opportunities. The government's focus has been on deregulating sectors by giving licenses to private refineries, removing government subsidies to the downstream sector and making private existing ones. It is hoped that the strategic action will help domestic capacity meet demand. The existing four refineries have had issues with consistently providing enough capacity to meet demand. This is due to a variety of factors, such as poor management turn-around maintenance routines.
The government has committed to initiating a gas revolution alongside approving central gas processing facilities. The amount of investment opportunities are substantial, given the number of prospects looking for international and local funding.
In this report, a detailed overview of Nigeria's downstream sector developments is provided, along with the growing investment opportunities in the country. The government is vigorously deregulating Nigeria's downstream sub-sector sector of oil and gas. NNPC is going through structural transformation to position itself as an integrated oil and gas company that is transparent and accountable. There are plentiful of opportunities for upstream and downstream activities, such as pipelines and storage, production, exploration for a large variety of service companies, such as consultants, equipment suppliers, petroleum providers, environmental technical service providers, storage and pipeline contractors, banks and others that are interested in financing major new developments. The government's local content policy is looking to have local oil and gas companies that are more integrated.
More large scale projects will be created by the growth of the natural gas market. This will include pipelines and distribution and gas processing. There have already been several gas-fired power stations implemented and more are planned to be in the future. It's possible that Nigeria will come out as a significant regional LPG producer and exporter. Under legislation is the Petroleum Industry Bill, which will provide framework for the structural changes needed in the oil and gas market.
