Nigeria state oil firm NNPC Ltd posts N37.5 bln trading surplus in Sept 2021

The Nigeria’s state oil firm NNPC Limited posted a trading surplus of N37.50 billion in September last year as the oil giant grew its revenue.

The company grew to $348.63 million in September 2021, representing $124.34 million over the $224.29 million revenue earned in August 2021.

According to the September 2021 NNPC Monthly Financial and Operations Report (MFOR) released Friday, the company trading surplus in September was 352 percent higher than the N8.29 billion surplus in August 2021.

The company attributed the rise in trading surplus largely to the increased earnings of NNPC’s Upstream subsidiary, the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC).

Trading surplus or trading deficit is derived after deduction of the expenditure profile from the revenue in the period under review.

NNPC noted that in September 2021, its Group’s operating revenue as compared to August 2021, declined by 29.87 percent or N191.90 billion to stand at N450.45 billion.

NNPC also recorded reduction in its expenditure for the month by 34.87 percent or N221.11billion to stand at N412.92billion.

Expenditure as a proportion of revenue in the month under review stood at 0.92 percent compared to the prior month’s 0.99 percent.
