Energy in Nigeria Wikipedia

17-06-2011· Nigeria's primary energy consumption was about 108 Mtoe in 2011. Most of the energy comes from traditional biomass and waste, which account for 83% of total primary production. The rest is from fossil fuels (16%) and hydropower (1%). Nigeria has oil reserves of about 35 billion barrels (5.6 × 10 9 m 3) and gas reserves of about 5 trillion cubic meters, ranking 10th and 9th in the world
