Nigeria is the 12th largest crude oil producer in the world (and the largest in Africa), and the 18th largest exporter.
Export of petroleum accounts for around 85% of the government's revenue. Oil was only discovered in 1956, and today
Port Harcourt is at the forefront of the oil industry in Nigeria. You would think this would make for a fabulously wealthy
nation, like Saudi Arabia, but sadly the oil wealth has not trickled down to the average Nigerian and the inhabitants of the Niger
Delta are some of the poorest in the country.
Contribute to the platform. Help paint a clearer picture of Nigeria's Oil and Gas Industry. Together, let's promote transparency and
accountability in one of our (Nigeria's) most important Industries.
To put things in perspective; Nigeria has over 300 oil blocks, over 200 oilfields, thousands of oil wells, infrastructure and
hundreds of Oil & Gas companies involved in producing or servicing. Collecting all this information is a long and difficult process.
The information is hard to find and even harder to confirm through independent sources. Understandably most Oil & Gas companies
and the government would rather keep the information private for their own personal use.
To counter our data aggregation challenges we're fostering an online community around our initiative and we encourage your
participation. Part of our initiative will involve approaching the government at various levels to release specific industry
information into the public sector for our developers and analysts to use and come up with interesting research results and
visualizations. Open is the keyword here and we're an advocate.
Do you have information about Nigeria's Oil & Gas industry? Can you confirm or update information we already have? Do you have ideas
for new visualizations, or want to make your own? Help us grow.

OilMapNG.com is a private initiative run by a handfull of Nigerians who are dedicating their free time to build, run and
maintain this platform from their own personal funds. This is a selfless initiative to help Nigeria promote transparency in
