The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) is the state oil
corporation which was established on April 1, 1977. In addition to its
exploration activities, the Corporation was given powers and operational
interests in refining, petrochemicals and products transportation as
well as marketing. Between 1978 and 1989, NNPC constructed refineries in
Warri, Kaduna and Port Harcourt and took over the 35,000-barrel Shell
Refinery established in Port Harcourt in 1965.
In 1988, the NNPC was commercialised into 12
strategic business units, covering the entire spectrum of oil industry

industry regulations; processes applications for licenses, leases and
permits, establishes and enforces environmental regulations. The DPR,
and NAPIMS, play a very crucial role in the day to day activities
throughout the industry.

the nation’s hydrocarbon resources for the benefit of all Nigerians and
