Engr. Sarki explained that after undergoing lengthy and vigorous process, 161 companies were shortlisted as potential awardees out of which 50 percent have met all conditions. He noted that the department would not abandon the companies after the award but would work with them to ensure immediate development and attainment of first oil in record time.

DPR estimates that Nigeria would produce additional 100 million barrels of crude oil from the 57 fields, in the coming years. Speaking at the award ceremony in Abuja, DPR Director/CEO, Engr. Auwalu Sarki said the fields would boost Nigeria’s daily oil production capacity beyond the current three million barrels per day.
