Ghana power sector stumbles

Not too long ago, Ghana was a frontrunner in African energy. The country boasts an average access to electricity rate of 74 percent — far above the average rate of 47 percent for West Africa. But in recent years, Ghana's progress has stalled, as it wrestles with power outages and struggles to insta ...

On the brink of progress in the Delta?

Last month I was very interested to read the announcement from our esteemed Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr Emmanuel Kachikwu.

Nigeria’s local firms flex their muscles overseas

Nigeria's local content capacity is regularly overlooked. Our home-grown companies are cast in the shadow of the multinational oil majors like Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Exxon Mobil Corp., Chevron Corp., Total SA and Eni SpA, which currently produce about 90 percent of our crude.

Fries with that?! The US takes a big bite out of the Nigerian pie

It's not been an easy couple of years to be in the oil and gas sector in Nigeria. The last government seems to have given away enormously under-valued concessions to anyone that asked, the currency has fallen off a cliff and no one really knows what it's worth, and oil prices have hardly been kind t ...

Deadline threatens self-sufficiency in Nigeria

Nigeria has been something of a playground for the International Oil Companies (IOCs) since the oil boom began here in the 1960s.

It's finally happening! The most eagerly-anticipated piece of legislation in the tumultuous history of the oil and gas sector in Nigeria is moving forward.

What football tells us about Nigeria’s supply concerns

So the latest news from the bigwigs at OPEC is that Nigeria's crude oil production has fallen from 2 million barrels per day to around 1.27 million. This sounds like bad news, anyone can see. And one would be foolish to suggest that a 37.5% decrease in crude production is a welcome shift for our oil ...

Clock ticking on Nigerian oil reform

After a 10-year wait, Nigeria and much of the oil sector globally wait this week in shared anticipation for the passing of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB).
