This was contained in a statement signed by Oluwakemi Ogunmakinwa (Mrs.), Deputy-Director, Press and Public Relations on behalf of the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources, Ambassador Gabriel Aduda..

Nigeria’s Ambassador Gabriel Aduda, became OPEC Governor of Nigeria, who assumed the role of Alternate Chairman for the OPEC Board of Governors for the year 2024.

Am. Gabriel Aduda is the current Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources.

Libya’s Minister, Mohammmed Oun was appointed as the Chairman of the OPEC Board of Governors for the year 2024.

The November 2023 gathering decisively dispelled speculations of discord among OPEC countries regarding the acceptance of their 2024 quotas.

The meeting culminated in a successful outcome that is expected to fortify market dynamics, fostering stability and sustainable growth within the industry.

A notable highlight was the warm welcome extended to HE Alexandre Silveira de Oliveira, Minister of Mines and Energy of the Federative Republic of Brazil, as Brazil announced its forthcoming inclusion into the OPEC+ Charter of Cooperation, effective from January 2024.

Emphasizing a steadfast commitment to the Declaration of Cooperation (DoC), the Participating Countries reaffirmed their dedication to the framework established since its inception on December 10, 2016.

This commitment has been consistently endorsed in subsequent meetings, notably at the 35th OPEC and Non-OPEC Ministerial Meeting on June 4, 2023, and further solidified through the Charter of Cooperation ratified on July 2, 2019.

The meeting addressed crucial aspects, including the completion of assessments by independent sources (IHS, Wood Mackenzie, and Rystad Energy) on the projected production levels for Angola, Congo, and Nigeria in 2024.

The assessments concluded production estimates at 1,110 t/bd for Angola, 277 t/bd for Congo, and 1,500 t/bd for Nigeria, in alignment with prior decisions set forth during the 35th OPEC and non-OPEC Ministerial Meeting.

Looking ahead, the 37th OPEC and non-OPEC Ministerial Meeting is scheduled to take place on June 1, 2024, in Vienna.

In parallel, during the 187th meeting of the conference of OPEC members, crucial appointments were announced.
