Author : | Published: Friday, March 21, 2014

OPEC and oil-producing nations are anticipating a boost in demand as more countries ease lockdowns.

Unity state government says work is ongoing to resume oil production in the oil fields.

The state caretaker governor, Dr. Joseph Monytuil said workers from the Ministry of Petroleum and Mining and the oil companies are fixing parts of the oil wells that were destroyed during the fighting.

Dr. Monytuil told Eye Radio that the production may resume at the end of the month.

Dr. Monytuil said the security situation at the oil field has been beefed up.

“The security situation is good, and we have secured all the oil fields and there is no threat at all,” he said.

“We must make sure that this oil is being produced, and our people have very high expectation in the development. So, for us to provide those requirements of our people, we need to have resources and -these resources come from oil.”

Dr. Joseph Monytuil said the Chinese and Malaysian oil companies are still operating in the oil fields.
