Nigeria can “easily” boost oil output next year, Kyari says
Nigeria can easily boost its oil production next year to at least 2.5 MMbpd, according to the newly appointed head of the state oil company.
Fixing damaged pipelines will allow the nation to return capacity that’s stranded across the Niger Delta, according to Mele Kyari, who took charge of Nigerian National Petroleum Company in July. The nation is currently producing about 2.3 MMbpd, including about 350,000 bbl of condensate, he said Thursday in an interview.
“We can easily hit 2.5 MMbpd in one year,” Kyari said in Abuja, the capital. “We can pull back the 300,000 bpd shut-in without doing anything significant,” he said, referring to stranded supply.
Nigeria’s output has been gradually rising since the middle of the decade when disruption caused by a campaign of militant attacks drew to an end. While theft and sabotage remain an issue, Kyari outlined a plan to raise oil production to 3 million barrels a day and boost reserves to 40 billion barrels within four years.
