Impact of the militant crisis on Nigeria's gas and power sectors

Impact of the militant crisis on Nigeria's gas and power sectors

Report summary

Nigerian oil supply outages have been a major talking point in 2016. However, the impact of militancy on the gas and power sectors has been no less severe, with gas supply down by over 50% and power generation down by over 60%. Associated gas supply in the western delta has been worst affected following the shut-down of the Forcados oil terminal in February, while gas pipelines in the eastern delta have also been attacked impacting not just power generation, but Nigeria LNG too. Nigeria relies on gas-fired power capacity for 85% of grid-connected generation, and most of this is located in and around the Niger Delta. The lack of alternative pipeline routes has exposed how vulnerable the country is to militancy. This slide-pack contains maps showing the location of power stations, oil and gas sabotage incidents since 2011 and all incidents of militancy in 2016. Charts also show gas supply and power generation since June 2015.
