  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources supervises the oil and gas sectors through its Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR). The DPR also supervises the Nigerian Nuclear Regulatory Authority (NNRA).

    The Federal Ministry of Power oversees the electricity sector. One of its extra ministerial departments, the Energy Commission of Nigeria (ECN), is in charge of energy sector ...

  • Energy Supply


    Nigeria has considerable oil and especially natural gas resources (5 Gt and around 5 600 bcm proven reserves at end-2017). Oil reserves are slightly below the official objective of 5.5 Gt for 2020. The reserves are mainly located in the Delta of Niger.

    The solar potential is significant, with an average solar radiation of between 4-6.5 kWh/m² per day (compared to 2.5 kWh/m² per day in ...

  • Energy Prices


    In 2012, the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission announced the implementation of cost reflective tariffs (Multi-Year Tariff Order, or MYTO) in order to attract private investments in the power sector. The MYTO is effective until May 2017 and led to an average 60% increase in the electricity price between 2008 and 2012. In 2015, the NERC issued revised electricity tariffs for ...

  • Energy Consumption

    Consumption per capita was 0.7 toe in 2017. Electricity consumption per capita is relatively low in comparison to neighbouring countries and, after a peak in 2012, decreased in 2016 to levels similar to those in 2010, with 128 kWh/hab.

    Total consumption increased rapidly (+3.7%/year) between 2000 and 2012, but its progression has slowed down since then due to severe supply constraints ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    The two main issues for the coming years are, on the one hand, the expansion of the electricity capacity and, on the other hand, to secure the energy supply in terms of safety of operations (action against theft and sabotage) and reliability for the supply of power plants (reduction of shortages).

    The country estimates that it will need around US$900bn to develop its energy sector ...
