Nigeria offers massive Oil Price discounts to lure buyers But will it be enough?

BLOG

Nigeria opened a new front in the oil price war between some of the world’s largest OPEC+ countries, offering to sell its crude in April at unusually large discounts in an effort to undercut its rivals. Even so, traders said the West African country may not have gone cheap enough. Nigeria now the poverty capital of the world has no fiscal buffers after years of giving the people nearly free fuel and electricity and forex and now Africa’s most populous nation faces a double whammy of a wild spread of Coronavirus and inability it fund its 2020 budget. Exports of Qua Iboe and Bonny Light crude — two banner Nigerian grades — will be sold in April for discounts of more than $3 a barrel to the international Dated Brent benchmark.

BLOG

The possibilities of having an oil and gas bid round this year appears to be bleak as the coronavirus pandemic continues to affect global economies and foreign investments. Indeed, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) had projected that the COVID-19 epidemic could bring global foreign direct investment flows to their lowest levels since the 2008-2009 financial crisis. The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylvia, had stated that government would conduct smaller bid round for marginal fields and thereafter focus on a major bid. Advertisement Advertisement Though unrealistic deadlines have been set for the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) initiated decades ago, Sylva insisted that the PIB, which would facilitate the bid round, would be passed before May this year. However, the Director/CEO of the Department of Petroleum Resources, Sarki Auwalu, stated that conducting bid rounds for marginal fields this year might be unrealistic, considering the state of the global economy. Auwalu, in a chat with The Guardian, noted that the timing is not right, considering the raging pandemic and equally added that the […]
