(NUPENG) believes changes and strategic deregulation are needed.
As an example, lets pretend you own a fruit farm and your end goal is to sell juice made from the fruit on your farm. Would you harvest the fruit and then send it to another country to process the juice and then send it back to you? or would you just process the juice on site? Well, many oil producing nations around the globe ship out their oil on a daily basis to get refined and Nigeria is one of them.
The situation where Nigeria imported oil from Litasco Group/Duke Oil and was contaminated with Methanol is a complicated one. The Methanol was apparently added to the oil by someone at Duke Oil, in order to increase the oil’s octane rating. This, of course, is a very dangerous thing to do, as Methanol is a very poisonous substance. Litasco Group (A Swiss company) working with Duke Oil (A subsidiary of NNPC) in Nigeria is responsible for this act. The Nigerian government is understandably very angry about this, and is currently investigating the situation.
Refinery capacity is not able to keep up with the current demand.
The Diesel shortage in Nigeria has been plaguing the nation over the last month. This has caused a number of issues for the citizens of Nigeria, as the lack of diesel has caused a shortage of food and has led to an increase in the cost of goods. The lack of diesel has also caused a lack of transportation, which has made it difficult for people to get to their jobs and has made it difficult for goods to be transported to different parts of the country. The lack of diesel has also caused a lack of electricity, which has made it difficult for people to keep their homes warm and has made it difficult for businesses to keep their lights on.
The contaminated diesel is not the only cause for the shortage in Nigeria, a lack of distribution infrastructure, smuggling, refinery capacity all play a part. The distribution infrastructure is not able to keep up with the current demand for fuel, which leads to long lines at the pump and shortages. The smuggling of fuel is also a problem, as people try to bring in fuel from other countries to sell at a higher price. The refinery capacity is not able to keep up with the current demand for fuel, which leads to shortages.
It is time for Nigeria to take control of its own oil wealth.
The National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) is suggesting that we highly regulate imported oil products, and deregulate local production and build more refineries. The reason for this is twofold. First, imported oil products are not subject to the same high level of regulation as domestic products. This means that there is a greater potential for adulteration and other safety concerns with imported products. Second, deregulation of the domestic oil production market will allow for greater competition and innovation, which will lead to increased efficiency and lower costs. Finally, increased refinery capacity will lead to increased production and decreased reliance on imported oil products.
Nigeria has long been an oil-producing powerhouse on the African continent. However, much of the country’s oil wealth has not translated into widespread economic prosperity. This is in large part due to the fact that Nigeria has not been able to refine its own oil. The country has instead been forced to rely on imported oil, which has driven up the cost of goods and services and limited the amount of money available for social welfare programs. It is time for Nigeria to take control of its own oil wealth. The country should invest in refining infrastructure so that it can process its own oil. This would create jobs and stimulate the economy. It would also allow Nigeria to export refined oil products to the rest of the world, generating valuable revenue for our Country.
