NNPC Awards 2017 Crude Oil Term Contracts to 39 Companies

Posted on by admin

Nigerian National
Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has awarded its 2017 crude oil term
contracts to 39 companies, the company said on Tuesday.
The contracts covering about 1.31 million barrels per day
(bpd) of crude oil were awarded to 18 Nigerian companies, 11
international trading houses, five foreign refineries, three
national oil companies and two “NNPC Group trading arms,” the
firm said in a statement.
NNPC said the contracts, worth a total of more than $72
million per day at Tuesday’s crude prices of around $55.60 per
barrel, were each for 32,000 barrels per day (bpd), apart from
Duke Oil Ltd, an NNPC Group subsidiary, which was for 90,000
The list compared with 27 companies that won contracts of
varying sizes for 2016. OPEC member Nigeria typically produces
just over 2 million bpd of crude oil, although its 2016 output
was hobbled by militant attacks.
China’s Sinopec and India’s Indian Oil Corp were among the
winners, as were international firms including the trading arms
of BP and Total and trading houses Litasco and Glencore.
Absent from this year’s list were the trading arms of oil
majors ExxonMobil, Shell and Eni, trading houses Mercuria and
Taleveras and refiner Saras, all of whom were on the 2016
contract list.

Vitol’s trading arm was also not on the list,
although, Varo Energy, a joint venture between Vitol and private
equity firm Carlyle Group, was.
NNPC head Maikanti Baru said the group had received bids
from 224 companies. He said the decision to announce the winners
reflected NNPC’s commitment to transparency.
“We’ll ensure transparency and fairness in the process,”
Baru said in a statement.

    Niger Delta region people companies dey among these 39 companies d federal government allocate blocks to so? Na only Hausa’s and Yoruba’s dey own oil blocks contracts since oil was discovered in d Niger Delta region which is a great injustice and oppression, this time around I hope Niger Delta region people companies pass 25 on d list,otherwise na d same evil system president Buhari dey continue which is unacceptable by d Niger Delta region people, they can’t control all d armed forces, federal civil service, top federal senior advisers, b d minister for d federal capital territory since its inception what an evil system?, this should b stopped if Niger Delta region people can get justice and fairness for peace to reign
