A Look At The Petroleum Industry In Nigeria by admin: 10:30 pm On 1 Jan 2019

Nigeria is the largest economy in Africa and it is the largest producer of oil and gas in Africa.

Oil exploration in Nigeria can be traced as far back to 1907, but it was until 1956 that oil was discovered in Oloibiri, Niger Delta area of Nigeria. It was discovered by Shell-BP which was the only concessionaire then. Other important oil wells were also discovered in Ogoni territory.

Oil production began in 1957 but it was only until 1958 when its first oil field came on stream that Nigeria joined the list of oil producing countries of the world. A total of 847,000 tonnes of crude was exported between 1957 and 1960. Oil exploration license were given to non British firms in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Mobil, Tenneco, started exploring in Nigeria in the year 1955, 1960 respectively, while, Gulf oil and Chevron started in 1961, and in 1962 Elf and Agip started exploring.

After Shell D’Arcy Petroleum discovery of petroleum, the first production began in 1958 in oloibiri at the company’s oil field. By the late 1960s and early 1970s the country as attained a production level of 2 million barrel per day. Due to the slump experienced in the economy, production level of the crude oil dropped in the 1980s. the country’s oil production bounced back and increased to a record high of about 2.5 million barrels per day

The production of petroleum plays a major role in the economic development of Nigeria. It accounts for about ninety percent of the country’s total gross domestic product. Agriculture which was the major source of revenue generation in the 1950s and 1960s in Nigeria was neglected because of the major role played by the petroleum industry in revenue generation in the country.
