Report summary

Despite a long history of IOC involvement, operators in Nigeria face numerous risks in access and development. Cumbersome bureaucracy can mean permitting delays of over a year, and certain fields are only open to indigenous firms. Development risks are high due to security threats, including community and environmental protests, growing levels of oil theft, and the threat of militancy. The longevity of the industry presence means that there are well established routes to export both oil and gas.
