The balance in the Excess Crude Account was 2.25 billion dollars, she noted.

Adeosun explained that acts of vandalism on oil pipelines, among other factors, had continued to negatively impact on oil revenue generation, saying “the shut-in and shut-down of production for repairs and maintenance continued during the period under review.

“However, there was a slight increase in production of crude in December 2015 but the resulting income was marginal due to a 10 per cent drop in crude oil prices.

“The drop in the average price of crude oil from 43.40 dollars in November to 39.04 in December 2015 resulted in a revenue loss of 22.55 million dollars.” (NAN)
