BREAKING! Nigeria To Import Crude From Venezuela.


NNPCL may begin importation of 110, 000 barrels of crude oil per day from Venezuela or Saudi Arabia to operate the Kaduna Refinery due to come on stream next year.

Also, the Dangote, Bua and other refineries may be forced to import about 1.322 million barrels of crude oil per day amid oil production challenges in Nigeria, existing contracts on crude oil swap as well as other commercial issues.

Currently, the Dangote Refinery, with 650,000 barrels per day refining capacity, is relying on imported crude, while the Bua Refinery within the South South region would need about 200,000 barrels per day of crude oil from next year.

NNPCL is also looking to bring back its 445,000 barrels per day refineries between next month and next year, while the existing modular refineries will require 27,000 barrels per day.

Nigeria has been struggling to sustain its crude oil production. The country currently records 113.52 million barrels shortfall in meeting Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) output quota. That loss alone is about $8.9 billion in the first seven months of 2023.
