The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) had declared a trading residue of N6.33 billion for May 2019, a number which is 13 per cent greater than the N5.60 billion surplus posted in the previous month of April 2019.

The NNPC, in its May 2019 edition of the Monthly Financial and Operations Report (MFOR), published on Sunday, attributed the average growth to the improvement in gas and power output which varies with the value for the preceding month.

The statement made public by the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of the Corporation, Ndu Ughamadu, in Abuja, also attributed the result to the surplus recorded by the corporation’s downstream entities like NNPC Retail, PPMC, NPSC and Duke Oil.

The report further indicated that within the period, the NNPC recorded a total of $580.32 million in the export sale of crude oil and gas which is 23.39 per cent higher than the previous month’s figure.

Out of this number, crude oil export sales contributed $458.59 million, which translates to 79.02 per cent of the entire dollar transactions compared with $342.11 million contributed in the previous month.

The report also indicated that between May 2018 and May 2019, crude oil and gas worth $5.97 billion was exported.

In the downstream, to ensure uninterrupted supply and effective distribution of petrol across the country, a total of 2.06bn litres of petrol translating to 66.49mn litres/day were supplied for the month of May 2019.

Within the period, a total of 60 pipeline points were vandalized, which represents a remarkable 52 per cent decrease from the 125 points vandalized in April 2019.

The Atlas Cove-Mosimi and Ibadan-Ilorin pipelines accounted for 38 per cent and 23 per cent respectively and other locations accounted for the remaining 39 per cent of the total breaks.

The report noted the spirited efforts by NNPC in collaboration with the local communities and other stakeholders to continuously strive to reduce and eventually eliminate this menace.

The May 2019 NNPC MFOR is the 46th in the series designed to provide greater transparency and remove the perception of opacity hitherto associated with the operations of the national oil company.
