List of Oil well and Oil block owners In Nigeria

Nigeria is known to be one of the largest crude oil-producing countries in Africa, and ranked the 6th oil producer in the world. It produces an average of about 2million barrels of crude oil per day. 70% of every oil produced in Nigeria comes from the Niger-Delta region of the country, which constitutes about 7% of the Nigeria’s land mass. In this piece, we shall look at the list of oil well owners in Nigeria.


With Niger-Delta being the highest oil-producing region in Nigeria, therefore one does not need a prophet to tell him that most oil blocks in Nigeria are located in that region. Niger Delta is a region within the South-South geopolitical zone in Nigeria.

Kindly note that some states in South East such as Anambra, Abia and Imo state are among the oil-producing states in Nigeria, and some part of Abia and Imo constitute the Niger Delta. Also, some states in the South-west like Ondo and Logas are counted as the oil states.

List of oil producing state in Nigeria

Oil-producing states in Nigeria are; Akwa Ibom, Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers, Edo, Abia, Anambra, Imo, Ondo, and Lagos. The amount of oil each of these states produces is not evenly distributed; in the sense that one state produces high or lower than the others. For example; Akwa Ibom state,Delta state, Rivers state and Bayelsa State all together produce about 90% of all oil produced in Nigeria, while other states combined together share the remaining 10 percentage.

It’s important to note that about 83% of oil blocks in Nigeria are owned by people from the Northern part of Nigeria. It was made to the public by a former Chairman of Senate Committee on Business and Rules, Senator Ita Enang.

But how possible could that be since about 89% of the oil blocks are owned and managed by multi-national cooperations? I guess he was referring to oil well, not oil blocks.

What is oil well?

An oil well is a dip (boring) dug in the Earth that serve the purpose of bringing up petroleum oil toward the surface of Earth.

Note: ‘Oil well’ is different from ‘Oil block’.

What is oil block?

An oil exploration block is a large area of land, usually about 1000s of sq. kilometers, that is awarded to oil exploration companies by the Govt of a country.
