Nigeria: Africa’s Leading Producer

Producing 2.1 million barrels per day (bpd), Nigeria serves as Africa’s largest oil and gas producer, although production is currently limited to 1.4 million bpd by OPEC-led quotas. In a bid to develop untapped resources and monetize existing resources, 2020 has seen the launch of a marginal field bid round and construction on the $2.8 billion Ajaokuta-Kaduna-Kano gas pipeline project, with a revised Petroleum Industry Bill and heightened M&A activity also expected this year.
