These global issues have been exacerbated by the deeply entrenched challenges presented by ineffective regulation, lack of onshore processing options & limited refining capacity in the country. Theft of crude oil & security issues have been a major problem in certain parts of the oil rich Niger Delta. The emergence of new competitors such as US shale oil and Louisiana light sweet oils has also placed further pressure on the marketability of Nigerian products. Alongside this, advancements in renewable energy and the green lobby will increasingly have a dampening effect on global oil demand." - Dayo Idowu Olajide Oyewole LLP Partner, at the Oil and Gas panel discussion at DLA Piper Africa week.
