African oil producers’ group moves hqtrs to Abuja


The African Petroleum Producers Organisation (APPO) has temporarily moved its headquarters from Brazzaville in Congo to Abuja, Nigeria as part of ongoing reforms to revive the 18 member-country group which accounts for more than 95 per cent of Africa’s oil production.

APPO is an intergovernmental organisation founded in 1987 to serve as a platform for cooperation, collaboration, knowledge and expertise sharing among African oil producers.

The group’s member countries account for almost 12 per cent of the world’s oil production and nearly 15 per cent of global proven oil reserves.

Secretary General of APPO, Mahaman Laouan Gaya, said in Abuja, yesterday, that the council of ministers of the organisation decided to undertake reforms in 2015 because after over 25 years of its existence there was little to show as its achievement.

This, he said, necessitated the move to Abuja.

Gaya said, “We moved to Abuja, Nigeria, in order to have a strong support from a strong country and we see that Nigeria is one of the countries that is able to support the transition of our organisation,”.
