It also includes seven Schedules: Right of Pre-Emption; Principles of Negotiating Incorporated Joint Ventures; Domestic Base Price and Pricing Framework; Pricing Formula for Gas Price for the Gas Based; Industries; Capital Allowances; Production Allowances and Cost Price Ratio Limit; and Petroleum Fees, Rents and Royalty.

The Bill seeks to provide for Legal, Governance, Regulatory and Fiscal framework for the Nigerian Petroleum Industry, the Development of Host Communities, and for related matters.

The Bill when passed will improve the clarity of structures, roles, accountability, transparency, and overall efficiency and effectiveness of the institutions in the Oil Industry.

Speaking at the inaugural meeting of the committee yesterday, Monguno urged Nigerians to make inputs to the bill by submitting their memoranda.

He said the House would pass the bill by the end of the first quarter of 2021.
