With unprecedented crude oil theft becoming a big challenge to oil production and revenue generation, the Nigeria Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission (NUPRC) said it has obtained necessary approvals to immediately implement the Advance Cargo Declaration regime in upstream petroleum operations to enhance transparency.

The effort blocks the export of stolen crude oil by ensuring that crude oil and gas cargoes exported from Nigeria will have a unique identifier that confirms all documentation of exported consignment. This implies that any cargo that does not have the unique identifier was not legitimately exported from the country.

Commission Chief Executive, Gbenga Komolafe, made the disclosure in Abuja at a media briefing at the weekend.

According to him, there were pragmatic steps being taken to grow the petroleum industry by blocking wastes and deepening developmental reforms.

He noted that NUPRC as a regulator has obtained necessary approvals to ensure installation of metering equipment (LACT Units) in the upstream petroleum industry using Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to avert potential manipulation of figures that could result in shortchanging the Federation of oil and gas revenue.

Komolafe also revealed that In line with the Petroleum Industry Act 2021, the Commission has prepared Model Licences and Leases, and delineation of 57 areas of marginal fields awarded following the 2020 Marginal Field Bid Round.

These initiatives, he noted, will facilitate issuance of Petroleum prospecting Licence to the marginal field awardees that formed SPVs as required in the 2020 bid round guidelines leading to early Field Development Plan (FDP) and oil and gas production from the awarded marginal fields.
