Nigeria, according to statistics has an estimated 37billion barrels of oil and 188 trillion cubic feet of gas. This places the country on top of other Oil and gas producing countries- the largest in sub-Saharan Africa. With these numbers, one would have expected the country to create more factories to aid production but the reverse has been the case, hence, the need for this bill. The Petroleum Industry law will help regularise the country’s petroleum industry thereby helping in the development of host communities, and another minor petroleum-related issue.
