Ban crude export, gas flaring, experts tell FG

Business Day
26 June 2011

A ban has been proposed on the export of Nigeria ’s crude oil and further flaring of gas by experts at the Oil and Gas International Conference which held in Port Harcourt recently.

In an effort to effect the proposal, Houses of Assembly in the oil-producing states have been urged to pass resolutions on the ban. The Rivers State House of Assembly, for instance, has been mandated to undertake the task of educating and convincing the other state parliaments in the region to start a lobby at the National Assembly so a bill would be passed banning export of crude oil/gas and gas flaring.
