Energy and downstream law

Energy and downstream law

One of the benefits of crude oil to the countries blessed with it is that it creates wealth for such a nation. The sectors are always divided within the nations either to indigenes or multinational companies. A company that cannot cope with the financial demands of the upstream sector can certainly ply its trade in the downstream sector. In Nigeria, there seems no clear synergy between the upstream and downstream. This poses a bit of developmental issues for the sector.
