He said, On the quantity of oil being stolen from Nigeria, the various figures you see are all estimated figures. There is no accurate gauge to measure the volumes of crude oil being stolen in this country, because we don’t have a standard measuring system.

“But because of the recent incident of a vessel that was intercepted for allegedly trying to steal crude oil from Nigeria, we think that a measurable quantity of our crude oil is not accounted for.

He added, “I also know that Nigeria is losing a lot of revenue from this oil theft and stakeholders are not happy with the way the cartel who are involved are handling the matter.

“It is, therefore, pertinent that the Federal Government should come out with a standard measuring instrument that will give the exact number of daily production, export consumption and the amount being reserved, as well as what we channel for local use.”

PENGASSAN recently held protests in Abuja, Lagos, Kaduna, and Warri, among other places, to protest the ongoing theft of crude oil in Nigeria.

In addition, Ogbonnaya Orji, Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiatives, stated in an interview that the oil sector’s 2021 audit report would be ready this year to determine the level of oil theft across the country.

“We want to establish the quantity of crude that is produced, how much of that can be accounted for and how much was stolen,” he stated.
