Petroleum Industry Act,
Governance And The Investor
It is exciting to note that after over two decades in the making, the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA) has now become law and establishes a new reality for Nigeria’s oil and gas industry, as the Act is expected to grow investors' confidence in Nigeria's Petroleum Industry and create more employment opportunities for the populace in the host communities. Moreover, the scale of the changes introduced by the PIA is widespread and profound, and it is seen as a significant overhaul of the administrative, regulatory and fiscal regime, as well as the key petroleum institution in the entire spectrum of the Nigerian petroleum industry.
The PIA, which contains a total of 319 sections, 5 chapters with a categorization into numbered parts, introduces pertinent changes to the governance, administrative, regulatory and fiscal framework of the Nigerian Petroleum Industry, in order to ensure transparency, strengthen the governing institutions and attract investment capital, among other objectives.
