NNPC: Nigeria Inches Closer to 40 billion barrels oil Reserve Target

The plan by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to grow the nation’s crude oil reserves to 40 billion barrels by the year 2020 received a major boost on Thursday with the execution of a tripartite agreement in Abuja.

The agreement was between the NNPC/FIRST Exploration & Production Joint Venture and Schlumberger for the development of the Anyalu and Madu fields in the Niger Delta under Oil Mining Licence, OML 83 and OML 85, offshore Nigeria.

Under the agreement, Schlumberger would provide the over $700 million development cost of the Anyala and Madu fields which would generate 193 million barrels of crude oil into the current reserves of 37.2billion barrels and an additional 800 billion cubic feet of gas into the nation’s proven gas reserves which currently stand at 197 Trillion Cubic feet of gas .

In terms of daily production, the fields will yield 50, 000 barrels of crude oil per day and 120 million standard cubic feet of gas per day by early 2019.
