Nigeria Gas Sector
The discovery of oil and gas in Nigeria dates back to 1956, when Shell-BP discovered it in Oloibiri in the Niger Delta. Nigeria became an oil producer in 1958 with the first oil field producing 5,100 bpd. Since then, the gas industry has been a crucial source of income and revenue for the Nigerian economy. In February 2021, the Nigerian gas sector contributed about 9% of the entire GDP of the nation.
Nigeria is the second-largest gas producer in Africa, and its gas reserves are the largest in Africa, with over 200 Tcf of proven gas reserves. The gas from the Niger Delta basin comes in two types: light and comparatively heavy. Both types are paraffinic and low in sulfur. As Europe seeks new suppliers of gas to replace imports from Russia, Nigeria is frequently referenced as a key partner to help the continent meet its shortage of gas. However, a new report challenges this established narrative and argues that Nigeria has even more to gain by focusing on the growth and potential of its domestic gas industry and position its export sector towards its immediate neighbourhood and Asia.
