The recent relative peace in the Niger Delta has translated into a boost for Nigeria’s gas reserves as the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has promised to continue to sustain viable solutions to the militancy situation in the region.

According to the NNPC Group Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru, the country’s oil and gas reserves rose to 37 billion barrels and 192Tcf respectively attributable to the relative peace that was instituted in the Niger Delta.

Baru stated this in an end of year message to staff of the corporation yesterday in Abuja, stressing that NNPC was committed to implementing a robust security and stakeholders’ strategy that would ensure that peace reigned in the industry’s operational areas.

The corporation said it had created security management platforms that would enable it identify and evaluate risks, develop and superintend implementation of investigations, and aggregate and deploy necessary resources to guarantee peaceful business environment in the region.
