Report of Investment Announcements, Q1 2019Report of Investment Announcements, Q1 2019

Tracked investments worth US$12.71 billion.

In furtherance to its mandate, the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) is pleased to report that it tracked investment announcements worth US$12.71 billion in the first quarter of 2019. The investments were tracked through the NIPC Intelligence Newsletters which are issued 6 days a week.

The Report showed that a total of 24 projects across 8 states were announced from investors in 12 countries. Comparatively, the investments announced for Q1 2019 were 57% less than the size announced in the same quarter of 2018. This was probably due to the national elections that took place in Q1 2019.

The major announcements were from Royal Dutch Shell Plc with US$10 billion in crude exploration, Moroccan OCP Group’s plan to build a US$1.5 billion ammonia plant and the joint venture contract between Malaysian partners and Nigerian oil company, First Exploration & Petroleum Development Company Ltd worth $901.79 million for the exploration of crude oil.

NIPC’s Intelligence Newsletter carries Nigerian investment-related news culled, from various sources. The Report is based only on investment announcements cited in NIPC’s Newsletters from January to March 2019; it may not contain exhaustive information on all investment announcements in Nigeria during the period.

Nevertheless, the Report gives a sense of investors’ interest in the Nigerian economy. NIPC did not independently verify the authenticity of the investment announcements but is working on tracking the announcements as they progress to actual investments.
