The importance of the domestic petroleum industry to the economy of Nigeria cannot be over-emphasized as an issue of national security, national self-reliance and as a major source of government revenue. Nigerias average daily production of crude oil and gas in 2007-08 was 70,205 barrels and 4,176 million cubic feet, respectively. Nigerias current crude oil production meets only 18% of the total demand for domestic consumption. The balance requirement is imported involving large expenditures of foreign exchange. Domestic gas production and supply presently fails to meet the demand of domestic users, the industrial sector and power generation. Furthermore, gas supply may soon become insufficient due to increasing demand and depletion of present reserves. This, in turn, will force Nigeria to soon begin importing large volumes of gas at international prices to feed the domestic market. Phoenix Oil Limited is committed to accelerate an exploration and development programme in order to reverse the decline in crude oil production, to increase the domestic gas production and supply and to reduce the burden of imported energy which otherwise will have adverse effect on the balance of payments & trade. In the current global energy price environment, E&P Policy has to be dynamic to meet the new challenges faced in meeting energy needs of the country at least cost option and to minimize the adverse effects on the economy of high import bill of energy.

The principal objectives of this Policy are: 1. To accelerate E&P activities in Nigeria with a view to achieve maximum self sufficiency in energy by increasing oil and gas production. 2. To promote direct foreign investment in Nigeria by increasing the competitiveness of its terms of investment in the upstream sector. 3. To promote the involvement of Nigeriai oil and gas companies in the countrys upstream investment opportunities. 4. To train the Nigeriai professionals in E& P sector to international standards and create favourable conditions for their retaining within the country. 5. To promote increased E&P activity in the onshore frontier areas by providing globally competitive incentives. 6. To enable a more proactive management of resources through establishment of a strengthened Directorate General of Petroleum Concessions (DGPC) and providing the necessary control and procedures to enhance the effective management of Nigerias petroleum reserves. 7. To undertake exploitation of oil and gas resources in a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable and responsible manner.
