中国石化新闻网讯 据12月1日Energy Mix Report报道，截至2020年10月，尼日利亚活跃钻机数量已大幅下降30%，从9月的10台下降至7台。众所周知，钻机数量可以反映出石油行业勘探、开发、生产和一般活动的水平。
FXTM高级研究分析师卢克曼•奥图努加(Lukman Otunuga)表示:“由于油价受到需求方面因素的限制，国际货币基金组织(IMF)对2020年经济增长- 4.3%的预测可能会成为现实。值得注意的是，由于欧佩克+持续减产，尼日利亚的石油产量大幅下降。来自欧佩克+的最新数据证实，尼日利亚在9月份遵守了减产协议，将石油日产量控制在150万桶以下。考虑到石油销售在出口收入和政府收入中占相当大的比重，这一事态可能会加剧该国的困境。”

Nigeria’s oil rig count drops by 30% in one month
Nigeria’s active rig count has dropped significantly by 30 per cent to seven in October 2020 as against 10 recorded in the previous month.
The rig count is a reflection of the level of exploration, development, production and general activities taking place in the petroleum sector.
This shortfall is coming at a time the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC, also witnessed a significant drop in its rig count, having recorded 325 in September, as against 363 recorded the previous month, according to the latest OPEC monthly oil market report.
World rig count also witnessed a shortfall of two, having recorded 1,135 in the latest count, as against 1,137 recorded the previous month.
Meanwhile, stakeholders at the Nigerian Association of Petroleum Explorationists, NAPE, have warned that the continued reduction in oil and gas exploration activities in Nigeria would have huge economic consequences for the country.
“Nigeria is at risk of long-term disruption to oil and gas supplies, power generation, a collapse of industries and significant loss of revenue due to reduction in hydrocarbon exploration activities.
“Reduction in hydrocarbon exploration and exploitation has dire consequences for a country like Nigeria with a mono-economy hinged on crude oil,” they noted.
According to Lukman Otunuga, Senior Research Analyst at FXTM, “With Oil prices capped by demand-side factor, the International Monetary Fund’s 2020 growth forecast of -4.3 per cent could become a reality.
“One thing to keep in mind is that Nigeria oil production has fallen sharply due to ongoing OPEC+ output cuts. The latest figures from the cartel confirm that Nigeria is sticking to supply cut agreements by keeping oil production below 1.5 million barrels per day in September.
“Given how oil sales account for a handsome chunk of export earnings and government revenues, this development is likely to compound the country’s woes.”
