NNPC Announces Huge Trading Surplus Of ₦141.96 Billion In June

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited has announced a huge leap in trading surplus of ₦141.96 billion recorded in June 2021 compared to a deficit of ₦37.46Billion in May 2021.

This is contained in the June 2021 figures of the NNPC Monthly Financial and Operations Report (MFOR), released today, December 12.

The report described “trading surplus” or trading deficit as being derived after deduction of the expenditure profile from the revenue for the period under review.

It said that in June 2021, NNPC Group operating revenue as compared to May 2021, decreased by 9.07 percent or N89.27 billion to stand at N894.64 billion.

It said that expenditure for the month decreased by 29.32 percent or N299.44billion to stand at N721.93billion.

The report said that expenditure in the period under review revenue was 0.81 percent, compared to the figure in May which stood at 1.04 percent.

The report said that the increase in trading surplus was due mainly to the increased sales of crude oil and gas by the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC), an Upstream subsidiary of the NNPC, and the increased gas sales and depreciation postings by the Nigerian Gas Company (NGC).

It said that the positive outlook was further bolstered by the performance of Duke Oil and the Nigerian Gas Marketing Company (NGMC) which also added to the improved bottom line.

According  to  the report, to ensure continuous supply and effective distribution of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) across the country, a total of 1.63 billion litres of PMS translating to 54.50mn liters/day were supplied in June 2021.
