Rivers Demands Marginal Oil Field …As Denial Impedes Indigenous Refinery Take-Off

The Tide
11 November 2011

The failure of the Federal Government to allocate a marginal oil field to Rivers State, has been cited as the cause of the failure of the take-off of the state-owned treasure oil resource.

Making the assertion at a press briefing in Port Harcourt yesterday, the Rivers Oil and Gas Professionals noted that the development was retrogressive in view of the fact that states like Bayelsa, Cross River, Akwa Ibom and Imo had long been allocated oil fields by the Federal Government.
