The Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC, and non-OPEC Ministers, otherwise known as OPEC+, has increased Nigeria’s oil output to 1.829 million barrels per day, mb/d with effect from 2022.

The decision was taken at the 19th OPEC and non-OPEC Ministerial Meeting (ONOMM), held via videoconference and monitored by The Daily, https://thedaily-ng.com. 

The new quota, which showed an increase of 30.6 percent, when compared to the 1.4 mb/d, excluding condensate, currently being produced by Nigeria, will take effect from 2022.

The decision was part of actions adopted to return commercial quantity of oil to the global market, as the world continues to recover from the Coronavirus pandemic, which had crippled demand and revenues of oil-exporting countries.

In a statement obtained by The Daily, https://thedaily-ng.com,  OPEC+, stated: “The Meeting welcomed the positive performance of Participating Countries in the Declaration of Cooperation (DoC). Overall conformity to the production adjustments was 113 percent in June (including Mexico), reinforcing the trend of high conformity by Participating Countries.

“The meeting noted the ongoing strengthening of market fundamentals, with oil demand showing clear signs of improvement and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, OECD, stocks falling, as the economic recovery continued in most parts of the world with the help of accelerating vaccination programmes.
