Al-Ghais commended NNPC Ltd.’s inclusive energy vision, emphasizing the importance of diverse energy sources in meeting global demand. Despite challenges facing the oil and gas industry, he highlighted the need for significant investments totaling $14 trillion by 2035 to address future energy needs.

“We will continue to ensure that the market is stable. The global market has to be stable in order for Nigeria to be able to attract investors. If there’s volatility, if there’s no stability in the market, it will only create havoc for everybody, whether it’s a producer or consumer country. So, we will continue to do that in OPEC. We count on Nigeria’s support”, the OPEC chief said.

Kyari, in response, outlined NNPC Ltd.’s efforts to boost production and create an enabling fiscal environment to attract investments. He expressed gratitude for OPEC’s support and affirmed NNPC Ltd.’s commitment to continue collaborating with the organization.
