The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) recorded gross revenue of N222.3 billion from Crude oil and gas sales in October, remitted in November 2020.
This represents a 37.3% increase relative to N161.9 billion recorded in October 2020, from the sales in September.
This is contained in the document presented to the Federation Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) meeting for December 2020, which details the company’s activities for the month of October 2020.
Checks indicate that in terms of the summary of receipts and remittances due for November 2020, gross revenue for JV crude oil was N197.3 billion, JV gas was N11.2 billion, miscellaneous was N13.7 billion; totalling N222.3 billion gross revenue for November.
Despite the surge in revenues, Nigeria lost about 1.882 million barrels of crude oil in October as a result of down-time in some of the facilities – including Bonny, Ugo Ocha, Antan, Okwori and Ima.
While some facilities were shut for routine maintenance (for example Okono), others were shut as a result of unforeseen circumstances (for example Batan and Yoho flow stations).
