Nigeria: 65m Barrels of Crude Oil Missing

Hamisu Muhammad, All Africa
About 65 million barrels of crude oil could not be accounted for by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), between 1999 and 2004, an audit report of the oil industry has revealed.

The report compiled by the Hart Group- a United Kingdom based audit firm for the Nigerian Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (NEITI), said the missing crude oil was due to shortfalls in the amount of crude oil sent to refineries within the period under review.

A chart in the report shows that in 1999, about 66million barrels of crude oil was sent by the Crude Oil Marketing Department (COMD) of the NNPC but the nations' refineries received 99 million barrels within the year which shows a difference of 33 million barrels unaccounted for.
