pazienza:

Eze,is that really possible? I mean the shifting oil stuff, tapping of oil in igboland from other lands.

I read it somewhere. It was a scientific article. If I see it again I will post the link.
Doesn't it even make sense explaining how suddenly our land is experiencing all these erosions?
These erosions weren't there before. Did they fall from Mars?
Something fishy is going on, and knowing how irresponsible our Igbo leaders are, anything is possible, believe me!

Anambra is not Abia state, the fact that you guys are not feeling good economic impact its blameable on bulk of bad leaders produced in abia since 1999. Again Anambra is fast developing their own refinery which will even surpass the gains of just being a member of oil producing states. The refinery alone will create thousands of high net-worth employment for Anambra people, you cannot say the same for Abia state which does not have refinery, they only depend on crude sales without production and refining as being done in Anambra.

Anambra people are already a hard working people who does not depend on Government to achieve anything, Nnewi is staring everybody on the face. Nnewi got to where it is today without government having to contribute 1N.

Today Nnewi Anambra state has the only private vehicle manufacturing plant in Africa, it has good number of industries that produce car accessories ranging from car engine block, car battery even Cutix cable is the best now in Africa/Europe all are produced in Nnewi.

Again Orient Pet. Refinery being an indigenous company with their Chinese/Japanese/US counterpart is another plus to it.

Anyone actually knows how much oil there is before you start  hailing a new dawn.
The last 3 states to join oil producing are not pumping out much at all compared to what states like delta and bayelsa are doing.
I think the onshore oil is not really that much as compared to the offshore.

The last time I read about it, it was about  1billion barrels. I believe it is big enough to warrant the private refinery.
I think that offshore produces more because there are less environmental and community interferrence in the process, not necessarily because the reserves are more.

if it is indeed 1 billion barrels then thats pretty descent .on average they tap till its 2/3rd done then it becomes not viable (this is something a oil worker in arbeeden told me years ago) so means there potential to tap close to 650m barrels which is not bad.Thats like 18 months of the entire nigeria capacity so it should be viable for next 20 years if it is indeed 1 b barrels.

@Nchara. We have since many oil prospecting companies claim to have found oil in one place or the other, yet nothing happen after. Why dont you wait till this indigenous company start production proper. Seeing they say is believing.Wish Anambra State luck.
Re: Anambra Joins Oil-producing States by Onlytruth(m): 12:10pm On Feb 18, 2012
This is for ALL umu Igbo and Nigerians (for as long as the country continues to exist).

[size=14pt]Please no insults @all.[/size]

Again like others have already said, until we umu igbo start to see the impact in Onitsha, we are not rejoicing yet.
ALL Igbo states are rich and if we pull our resources together, we will build the East to attract our people back to the East.

This is where I leave the thread for now.

Intresting read about blocks found as of 2005 .Note the huge amount of blocks  in benue which has attracted chevron and others.
It seems elf found the  blocks first in anambra but abandoned it since only 1 was oil rest was gas.
more intresting is the chad basin which i heard of a few years back and BP was already in chad trying to start exploration .
Turns out the basin does indeed extend deep into Nigeria with nnpc trying to tap it .
http://www.nigerianbestforum.com/generaltopics/?p=78447
So seems borno might be joining oil producers soon as will benue.
Though NNPC is a lazy company and suprised borno has not found someone else to do it apparently they botched the job in the past by not drilling to required depth and declared no oil in chad basin only for the british to find it years later in chad itself.
Maybe this is the solution for nigeria let SS,SE,SW,north all have oil and gas then maybe we can stop fighting who is stealing oil from which tribe and actually focus on the real problem corrupt politicans !

Why exactly. I think it's a good thing. This will make our selfish Igbo leaders to want to secede so that they will loot our oil money but i trust Igbos, we will surprise them. It's times like this that i like the Igbo spirit of stubbornness. At times i wonder if black magic was used on the Niger Delta people.

Seems soon whole Nigeria will have oil  grin
Note this licences for 2005 for new wells and does not take into account already existing wells esp. in delta,bayelsa.
This is even a 2005 report they discovered much more gas and some more oil in benue basin but seems the government is convinced the chad basin is the future so much so madam oil minister believes once the chad basin starts producing we should be tossing out 4m/barrels a day.

Bia, nwa Ikwerre. I'm just saying that the Niger Delta has suffered a great deal in the hands of Nigeria and i don't really see them fighting back. I feel everybody should be allowed to control their resources and not some northerners. How do you explain the number of northerners and the federal character that they have used to deprive Ndi Ikwerre, Ijaw, Igbo and other groups in the Niger Delta from dominating NNPC.

How many countries will come out of a break up?
Considering how many tribes and sub tribes we have in Nigeria i can see 10 + countries at least emerging .US/EU will never allow this for one.
Considering the new finds of oil in places like chad basin,benue basin,anambra basin the US will rather keep nigeria as one rather then deal with hostile oil  nations next to each other .
Once you got oil then you catch the eye of the west immediately and a unified nigeria with more oil is so much better for them .Only 1 government they need to keep under check rather then try and control  at least 4 with oil (ondo from yoruba side ,abia/anambra from igbo,whole niger delta ,benue/borno from north),2 of which are landlocked and will need permits to ship out the oil .

Onlytruth:
Bros, I tell you, if Nigeria is coming apart, nothing on earth can stop it.
Do you really think they didn't know all these while. Frankly I blame our politicians and leaders for allowing this cheating to go on.
They are ALREADY tapping this oil from the ocean. Our leaders keep quiet while our lands are ravaged by erosion.
Believe me, the greatest thing is that this is blown wide open for all of us to see the truth.
It won't stop our leaving if we are determined to leave.

Eze Onlytruth, nwanne m, you are a bloody liar and shameless conspiracy theorist. To posit that oil in Anambra is tapped from the ocean clearly shows a level of ignorance which is characteristic of  dunces and intellectual midgets. One Ozodi Osuji, Ph. D, foolishly claimed that  “there is something in the psychological makeup of Igbos that makes them always go looking for trouble”, and you, olodo, are giving credence to Osuji’s claims.

You should be celebrating the achievements of Orient Petroleum Resources, PLC for bringing a refinery to Anambra.  If I were you, I wouldn’t celebrate any inland oil exploration in Anambra until I know how costs associated with the risk of explosion and leakage of oil, and cost of protecting against such disasters, are being provided for. Trust me, these accidents and disasters are bound to happen.

Onlytruth, to debunk your false claim, I present the  fact sheet below :

Jun., 2002: OPR awarded License to Establish 55,000 b/d Refinery
● Sep., 2003: DPR, MPR reviewed & approved OPR Refinery Basic Design
● Feb., 2004: OPR awarded 1st ever Approval to Construct Oil Refinery in Nigeria
● Feb., 2005: FEED contract to SS&W, USA & EIA due process completed
Feb., 2005: FGN awarded 2 License blocks (OPLs 915/916) to OPR
● Apr., 2006: Site preparation by JBN & other geotechnical consultants
● 20th Apr., 2006: President Obasanjo laid foundation stone of refinery
● Dec., 2006: BPDI, China selected & awarded $550m EPC contract
● Dec., 2006: China Eximbank issued LOI for 85% funding
● Jan., 2007: UBA accepted to serve as repayment guarantor
● Feb., 2007: Team of BPDI visited site & completed layout design
● Mar., 2007: Min of Energy issued comfort letter to China Eximbank
● Nov., 2007: Basic Design Review completed in Beijing, China
● Dec., 2007: Topographic Surveys and water wells completed.
● Dec., 2007: Geotechnical & Hydrogeological investigations completed
● Jun., 2008: Ministry of Energy, issued ATC validity assurance letter
● Jun., 2008: Min. of State (Petroleum) issued feedstock supply assurance letter
● Jul., 2008: Civil & Foundation works ongoing by RCC Nig. Ltd.
