Nigeria Petrochemicals Report 2016

Nigeria Petrochemicals Report 2016

BMI View: Nigeria remains the most significant sub-Saharan African market, in terms of size, growth andfuture potential. Growth in gas production is set to spur downstream petrochemicals industries, particularlyfertiliser and methanol and under the Buhari administration the business environment has improved, eventhough the decline in oil prices and the depreciation of the naira have had a negative effect.

In 2015, Nigeria had olefins production capacities of 550,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) ethylene and125,000tpa propylene with thermoplastic resins capacities of 240,000tpa linear low-density polyethylene(LLDPE) and 95,000tpa polypropylene (PP). Nigeria's petrochemicals sector is characterised by lowcapacity utilisation, frequently disrupted plant operations and a lack of proper resources to operate andmaintain facilities.
