Nigeria’s crude oil production rises to 2.6m bpd

1 July 2011

NIGERIA’S crude oil production has increased from 2.4 million barrels per day (bpd) to 2.6 million bpd.

The Ministry of Petroleum Resources had said early this year that Nigeria’s combined crude oil and condensate output was around 2.4 million bpd with capacity to reach three million bpd.

Both the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, Kingsley Kuku and the former Special Adviser to the President on Petroleum Matters, Dr. Emmanuel Egbogah, attributed the feat to the success of the amnesty programme, which they said, encouraged more crude oil drilling in the Niger Delta.
