Just as crude oil production is increasing from its lowest ebb as a result of attacks on oil and gas installations by Niger Delta agitators, there is a fresh threat from the workers in the oil and gas industry that can affect the production in the country, just as the picketing of all ExxonMobil Nigeria entered the second day on Wednesday.
The workers, under the aegis of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN), have started gradual withdrawal from oil and gas installations belonging to Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited, the Nigeria’s ExxonMobil arm.
Currently, Mobil is one of the largest oil producing company in Nigeria with about 660,000 barrel per day (bpd). Nigeria’s revenue will be negatively impacted if the oil wells and shut down of oil and gas installations by PENGASSAN is carried out
