Incomes from oil and gas production in June went down by 44.65 per cent, showing a cost decrease of about $226.38 million between May and June 2019, data from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) had shown.

NNPC, in its June 2019 monthly financial and operations statement, declared that in May, the sales value of oil and gas production in Nigeria was $547.61 million. This, however, descended to $321.23 million in June.

The full content of the report was posted on the NNPC webpage.

It stated within the month under review, its under-recovery – a term it uses in place of subsidy payments for petrol consumption in the country, reduced from N102,338,409,727 in May to N30,637,245,949 in June.

Additionally, it lost N4,730,839,707 to oil theft in June as against N5,657,069,733 lost to same in May, but could not cut down its expenditure on repairs of pipeline in June when it spent N16,812,746,932 as against the N12,430,497,197 spent in May.

“A total export sale of $321.23 million was recorded in June 2019; a decrease of 44.65 per cent compared to the previous month,” said the report.

According to it: “Crude oil export sales contributed $248.22 million (77.27 per cent) of the dollar transactions compared with $458.59 million contributions in the previous month.

Although the oil corporation did not specifically state the reasons for the reduction in oil revenue, it acknowledged that there was a decline in oil price in the international market even when Nigeria’s oil production rose slightly by about 0.04 per cent.

“This month, average crude oil price dropped for the second consecutive month by $7.32 or 10.72 per cent m-o-m (month-on-month) to average $61.02/b. In the same vein, ICE Brent in June 2019 dropped by $7.27, or 10.3 per cent m-o-m at $63.04/b while NYMEX WTI decreased by $6.16 or 10.1 per cent m-o-m to average $54.71/b.

“In May 2019, a total of 60.00 million barrels of crude oil and condensate were produced representing an average daily production of 1.94 million barrels. This translates to an inconsequential increase of 0.04 per cent in the average daily production compared to April 2019 average daily performance,” it added.

Also, NNPC stated that of the May 2019 oil production, Joint Ventures (JVs) and Production Sharing Contracts (PSC) contributed about 28.99 per cent and 45.40 per cent respectively, while Alternative Finance (AF), Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC) and Independents accounted for 10.77 per cent, 8.12 per cent and 6.71 per cent respectively to the pool.

The NNPC as well indicated that out of the total volume of oil produced within the period, it lifted about 15,661,358 barrels for the federation, while the International Oil Companies (IOCs) and independents, including the NPDC, lifted 40,858,616 barrels. Liftings by AF were placed at 2,031,249 barrels by the corporation’s report.

Meanwhile, a statement from the corporation has also said its retail subsidiary – the NNPC Retail would engage the Nigerian Navy to provide security cover for it to sell petroleum products to communities in the Niger Delta through its mega floating stations.

The statement, signed by its Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mr Ndu Ughamadu, said the Managing Director of NNPC Retail, Mr Billy Okoye, had met with the navy to provide adequate security for its badges and other facilities routinely deployed for such services.

It stated that Okoye and his management team paid a courtesy call on the Nigerian Navy Chief of Training and Operations (CITOPS), Rear Admiral Tariworio Dick, where far-reaching measures on the plan were put in place.

The NNPC stated the smooth operation of the 12 floating mega stations would help to guarantee petroleum products penetration in the far ends of communities in the Niger Delta region.

According to it, while there are two floating mega stations located in six states comprising Cross Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Rivers, Bayelsa, Delta and Ondo, the volatile security situation in the Niger Delta terrains through the years have made it challenging for it to fully operate them for efficiency.
