The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) recorded ₦24.19billion trading surplus in December 2020.

The report disclosed that the increase in trading surplus was due mainly to the significant rise in profit of NNPC’s Upstream entity, the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC) amid improved market fundamentals and strong global demand for crude oil.

Other factors include the improved performance by the Nigerian Gas Marketing Company (NGMC), the Petroleum Products Marketing Company (PPMC), the National Engineering and Technical Company (NETCO) and Duke Oil Incorporated.

In the Downstream Sector, 2.26billion litres of white products were sold and distributed by Pipelines and Product Marketing Company (PPMC) during the month.
