9.94% of the total gas produced in 2018 was flared away.

To end gas flaring, the @NGRSenate passed a Bill to prohibit gas flaring in Nigeria after the 3rd reading in April 2019 since 2nd reading in 2017.

Here's all you should know about the Bill.

Gas can only be flared in accordance with an Authorisation granted by the Minister.

All data relating to the gas resources and flaring/venting of gas must be submitted to the Minister within six months.

Amidst crude price issues, money paid by @Shell to FG has been increasing since 2016.

2015: $4.9bn
2016: $3.6bn
2017: $4.3bn
2018: $6.3bn

$19.3bn was received by the government btw 2015 and 2018.

Has @MBuhari’s administration used oil money wisely?

#AskQuestions #FixOurOil
The highest payments received was courtesy of production entitlements which accounted for 59% of total $6.3bn payment received from Shell in 2018.

Production entitlements: 59%
Tax: 20.1%
Royalties: 15.3%
Fees: 5.6%

#AskQuestions #FixOurOil
With $3.7bn, NNPC received the highest component of these payments courtesy of production entitlement. Is NNPC accountable enough to the government and citizens?

NNPC: $3.7bn
FIRS: $1.28bn
DPR: $1.25bn
NDDC: $0.08bn

BudgIT has called on Pres. @MBuhari to privatize all government-owned refineries and fully deregulate the petroleum downstream sector.

Our new Policy Brief found: government-owned refineries made a total loss of N159 billion in 2017/18.


According to the Policy Brief, Nigeria's government-owned refineries in Kaduna, Port Harcourt and Warri incurred a cumulative loss of N32.8 billion in 2017 and N126.2 billion in 2018, making a total loss of N159 billion in the two most recent years alone.

With an average combined refining capacity utilization of merely 8.27% in 2018, the government-owned refineries are consistently unable to meet local demand, putting Nigeria in a precarious situation of importing nearly 91% of locally consumed petrol.

@OpenFundingNG @BudgITng @akorive001 @MatthewTPage The first thing to do is prioritize passage of the PIB. Because this bill provides the framework for the commercialization of the sector. Saying we'll not privatize or commercialize is not an option. We must make effort to make d sector more accountable, transparent & profitable.
@OpenFundingNG @BudgITng @akorive001 @MatthewTPage The Minister of Petroleum spoke about increasing our production capacity to over 4m bpd. Well that will cost somewhere between $25 – $30 billion. How is that going to happen if not from investment capital? #GrowthForAll
@OpenFundingNG @BudgITng @akorive001 @MatthewTPage Secondly, sell the refineries. We already started on the path to full privatization of the downstream sector since 2003, so let’s finish it. Today, the refineries are operating at 10% capacity and the hope of the govt for local refining is based on the expected output from...

Hello Nigerians, let’s talk about FUEL SUBSIDY!

• In 13 years, Nigeria spent at least N10 trillion on subsidy
• NNPC cabal possibly swallowed extra N11.8bn subsidy in June 2017
• Despite equalization subsidy, petrol is sold above N145/liter in some states


Before we delve into the dilemma of Nigeria's subsidy regime, here's the country's profile:

At least N10 trillion has been spent on petrol subsidy from 2006 - 2018. This could fund the construction of 27,000MW of solar-powered electricity to create stable electricity.

Which would you prefer? Stable power supply or cheap fuel? Tell us in the comment section

NNPC has stated that it is settling the current subsidy costs from $1.05 billion revolving fund, kept with CBN.

It stated that funds were sourced from the corporation’s share dividend in the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG). #FixourOil
There has been enough explanations that the shares "owned" by NNPC in NLNG, are held on behalf of the Nigerian people.

Why is @NNPCgroup using funds that should accrue to the Federation account for subsidy? #AskQuestions #FixourOil
NNPC in its monthly reports also deducts funds for under-recovery (subsidy) before remittance to the Federation Accounts.

There are huge questions to be answered.

NNPC claims it lost N111.42 billion worth of crude oil and products in its custody between 2015 - 2017. This is separate from the N427 billion it claimed as financial losses incurred at its corporate headquarters alone, CHQ within the same period.

NNPC paid N450 billion as subsidy to oil marketers without approval of the National Assembly. As a result, PMS 'consumed' JUMPED from 24.1m litres/day to a peak of 52.7m liters/day in March 2017. The extra, cheap fuel is sent out for sale neighbouring countries.

NNPC deducted N427 billion from Nigeria's crude oil revenue - without approval of the National Assembly @nassnigeria - to cover 'financial losses' at its corporate headquarters, CHQ alone between 2015 - 2017.

This is more than the 2018 budget for Health of N356bn.
