Global and domestic companies are eager to capitalize on Nigeria’s rich natural resources.
Energy & Natural Resources
The energy and natural resources industry is central to Nigeria’s economy. Oil and gas production comprise approximately 35 per cent of Nigeria’s gross domestic product and about 90 per cent of total exports revenue, according to the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Companies (OPEC). With a rapidly expanding population, Nigeria is also turning to renewable energy to bring power to its urban and rural communities and to diversify its energy sources. The country is investing in electricity, solar power projects and hydropower, as the demand for energy by 2020 will almost double from current levels.
