Nigeria Economic Update (Issue 44)

Recently released Nigerias
petroleum imports data, show a significant decline in the quantity and value of
petroleum import products (PMS, AGO and NHK) between 2015 and 2016.
Specifically, value of imports significantly declined year-on-year (January to
April) by 30.4 percent to N571 billion in 2016. The huge decline in
the import of (refined) petroleum products likely reflects the lower
(unrefined) crude oil production/exports. Furthermore, it is likely that the
import of petroleum products could decline in subsequent years; however, this
is dependent on the prospects of the three domestic refineriesbeing refurbished.
