Nigeria’s Oil Output Rises, Despite Surge In Pipelines Attacks

Nigeria’s oil output, including condensates, is on the upward swing despite rise in sabotage attacks on production facilities, according to data released by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

NNPC spokesman, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu, told S & P Global Platts that Nigeria’s production hovered around 2.2 million barrels per day in the first week of August, compared with around 1.92 million per day a year ago.

He adds that the country’s crude and condensate production has risen sharply in the past six months due to the start-up of the 205,000 barrels per day Deep Water Egina Field, which came online December 29.

Nigeria pumped 2.1 million barrels per day and 2.05 million barrels per day of crude and condensate in June and July respectively, based on Platts estimates.
