PENGASSAN also stated that the military should be forced to explain how massive amounts of oil were stolen from the Niger Delta despite their personnel protecting oil installations.
Chief Ukadike Chinedu, National Public Relations Officer of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, told our correspondent that while there may be some inconsistencies in oil theft data, the volume of crude stolen from the country was massive.
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.”
