Nigeria’s Petroleum Industry Bill has been split into a number of distinct legislations which now include:
1. Petroleum Industry Governance Bill (PIGB)
2. Petroleum Host & Impacted Communities Development Bill (PHCDB)
3 Petroleum Industry Fiscal Bill 2018 and
4. Petroleum Industry Administration Bill 2018.
The Petroleum Host & Impacted Communities Development Bill 2018 aims to provide a framework for the governance of host communities development. It also seeks to provide direct economic benefits from petroleum operations to host communities, and to improve peaceful coexistence between host communities and oil companies (also known as settlors) involved in petroleum production. SPACES FOR CHANGE | S4C has analysed the new Bill and convened community consultative meetings to sensitize oil producing and oil impacted communities on the new legal provisions.
