Nigeria’s LNG sales fell 18% to N622bn in first quarter of 2023
The good people of Business Day asked for Megathos Law Practice thoughts on Nigeria earning N622 billion from exporting Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in the first quarter of this year, the lowest in five quarters according to new government data. According to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), Nigeria’s LNG sales dropped by 18 percent from 757 billion in the third quarter of last year. “Incessant attacks on oil and gas facilities, the rising cost of oil and gas production, need for newer drilling technology, and community issues reduced the amount of associated gas, which serves as feed gas for LNG companies to purify, liquefy and ship for export,” said Olufola Wusu, partner and head of oil and gas at Megathos Law Practice. “Other reasons include the migration from onshore to deep Offshore fields by the IOC’s, the maturity of the fields leading to a decline in output, the seeming unwillingness to drill new wells, and the initial delay in setting up a bid process to allocate new oil and gas blocks.” Wusu added that the delay in expediting drilling for non-associated gas, in natural gas wells in the prolific deep offshore fields also contributed to the dip in natural gas sales.

Types of Employees you meet in the Workplace
As the mass resignation continues, more employees are looking to change jobs, with an emphasis on stock options, flexible working hours, a better work life balance and better pay. This has led to an increase in mobility of labour, with several employees becoming digital nomads, sometimes working two jobs at the same time. However, as you search for talent, it is important to understand the characteristics of the types of employees you have or plan to hire and the number of generations in the workplace so you can evolve appropriate H.R. policies to cater for the needs of “Boomers”, “Gen X”, “Millennials” and “Gen Z”.
