Earnings From Upstream Subsidiaries Boost NNPC’s Trading Surplus By 352% To N37.5bn
The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited has announced a trading surplus of N37.5bn for the month of September 2021, representing a 352.35 per cent increase from the N8.29bn surplus in August 2021.
Details of the figures contained in the September 2021 NNPC Monthly Financial and Operations Report indicate that the rise in trading surplus was largely due to the increased earnings of NNPC’s Upstream subsidiary, the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company.
