Background

Former President Muhammadu Buhari had in July 2022 unveiled the new Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, a landmark development that officially changed the oil firm from a wholly state-run entity to a commercial oil company limited by shares.

The legal transition, based on the new Petroleum Industry Act, took effect on July 1. The NNPC completed its incorporation in September 2021 weeks after the PIA was signed into law by President Buhari.

In February this year, NNPC Ltd took over the assets of the nation’s oil company (NNPC) after 46 years of its operations as a corporation.

The company took over after attaining legal requirements within the stipulated 18 months in line with section 54 (3) of the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA) 2021, and the corporation transitioned into a company whose operations will be regulated by the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA).
