Nigeria, third best in Data Submission –OPEC

The Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) has commended Nigeria for ranking third among member countries in data submission.

Dr Omar Ibrahim, OPEC Governor for Nigeria, disclosed this at the OPEC Data Management Training Workshop in Abuja, on Monday.

He said Nigeria has done well in the provision of credible data in the Oil and Gas sector.

“For some time, our record at data submission and also the accuracy of data, hasn’t been good in OPEC.

“We have always lacked behind most OPEC countries in data submission as well as the accuracy of data that we have been submitting.

“But in the last three years, things have changed, OPEC is very happy with us; the accuracy of our data has improved tremendously.

“Also, the timeliness of the submission of our data has improved tremendously, I believe that as at today we are the third in the hierarchy of data submission,’’ he said
