List of oil well and oil block owners in Nigeria

Nigeria is known to be one of the largest crude oil producing countries in Africa, and ranked the 6th oil producer in the world. Nigeria produces an average of about 2million barrels of crude oil per day. 70% of every oil produced in Nigeria comes from the Niger-Delta region of the country which constitute about 7% of the Nigeria’s land mass.

With Niger-Delta being the highest oil producing region in Nigeria, therefore one does not need a prophet to tell him that most oil blocks in Nigeria is located at that region.

Niger Delta is a region within the South-South geopolitical zone in Nigeria.

Some states in South-East like Anambra, Abia and Imo state are among the oil producing states in Nigeria, and some part of Abia and Imo constitute the Niger Delta.

Also, some states in the South-west like Ondo and Logas are counted as the oil states.

Before we show you the list of oil well owners in Nigeria, let’s first show you the list oil producing states.

List of oil producing state in Nigeria

Oil producing states in Nigeria are; Akwa Ibom, Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers, Edo, Abia, Anambra, Imo, Ondo, and Lagos. The amount of oil each of these states produces is not evenly distributed; in the sense that one state produces high or lower than the others. For example; Akwa Ibom state, Delta state, Rivers state and Bayelsa state all together produce about 90% of all oil produced in Nigeria, while other states combined together share the remaining 10 percentage.

It’s important to note that about 83% of oil blocks in Nigeria are owned by people from the Northern part of Nigeria, it was made to the public by a former Chairman of Senate Committee on Business and Rules, Senator Ita Enang.

But how possible could that be since about 89% of the oil blocks are owned and managed by multi-national cooperations? I guess he was referring to oil well not oil blocks.
