Country Analysis Brief Overview
- Nigeria's hydrocarbon resources are the mainstay of the country's economy, but development of the oil and natural gas sectors is often constrained by instability in the Niger Delta.
- For the last nine years, the U.S. has imported between 9-11 percent of its crude oil from Nigeria; however, U.S. import data for the first half of 2012 show that Nigerian crude is down to a 5 percent share of total U.S. crude imports.
- Nigerian LNG exports to the U.S. substantially declined in 2011, while the country's LNG exports to Japan more than tripled in 2011.
