Must read

Seplat Energy PLC, a leading Nigerian independent energy company listed on both the Nigerian Exchange and the London Stock Exchange, has announces its unaudited results for the three months ended 31 March 2024, declaring US 3 Cents dividend per share for the period.

For the period under review, production averaged 49,258 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd), down 4.8% on prior period (3M 2023: 51,720 boepd), but 5.7% above Q4 2023 production, and towards the upper end of 2024 guidance (44,000 boepd – 52,000 boepd).

Seplat Energy also achieved more than 2.3 million hours without Lost Time Injury (LTI) at Seplat-operated assets in Q1 2024.

The Company also applauded the progressive moves taken by President Bola Tinubu and the industry regulators, following the signing of the executive orders that will provide fiscal incentives in Nigeria’s gas and midstream businesses. In addition, an executive order was signed and gazetted into law, which has potential to materially improve our contracting process and bring the right level of efficiency that will support costs reductions. This can drive the much-needed efficiency gains across our industry.

The Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA) recently lifted the domestic gas price to $2.42/Mscf supporting revenue generation and re-emphasising the government’s commitment to develop Nigeria’s gas resources, a factor aligned with Pillar 2 in our strategy.

According to Seplat Energy, the message to investors on the acquisition of ExxonMobil’s share capital in Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited (MPNU) is unchanged. Dialogue between key parties is active and constructive, and the company remains confident that a conclusion will be reached on the transformational acquisition.

“In Nigeria, we were pleased to see more progressive actions taken by President Tinubu and the industry regulators. In March, the President signed executive orders that will provide fiscal incentives in our gas and midstream businesses. In addition, an executive order was signed and gazetted into law, which has potential to materially improve our contracting process and bring the right level of efficiency that will support costs reductions. We applaud the change, which can drive much needed efficiency gains across our industry. More recently NMDPRA lifted the domestic gas price to $2.42/Mscf supporting revenue generation and re-emphasising the government’s commitment to develop Nigeria’s gas resources, a factor aligned with Pillar 2 in our strategy.

“Our message to investors on MPNU is unchanged. Dialogue between key parties is active and constructive, and we remain confident that we can reach a conclusion on this transformational acquisition.”
