OPEC says Nigeria’s oil production averaged 972,000 bpd in August 2022 – Nairametrics

In its monthly oil market report released on Tuesday, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), says Nigeria’s crude oil production for August declined to 972 thousand barrels per day (t/bpd).
It represents a 112 thousand barrels per day drop when compared to 1.084 million barrels per day for the month of July 2022.
Total crude oil production from OPEC members averaged 29.65 million barrels per day in August 2022, higher by 618 thousand barrels per day, month-on-month. Crude oil output increased mainly in Libya and Saudi Arabia, while production in Nigeria declined.
Economies of OPEC member countries like Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates observed an upward trend, largely due to supportive economic policies, large-scale energy investments and gains made from higher energy prices.
OPEC projected that the global oil demand was expected to grow by 3.1 million barrels per day in 2022 and by 2.7 million barrels per day in 2023.
