Department of Petroleum Resources
The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) is the regulator of the oil and gas industry in Nigeria. Its functions are wide and varied. DPR is responsible for overseeing the lifting of oil, gas and condensates exported from the countryís terminals. It also oversees the lifting of finished petroleum products from depots to service stations throughout the country and monitoring the quality of products and compliance with regulations.
Other functions include the issue and renewal of permits and licences, inspection of operational sites and conducting of licensing rounds leading to the allocation of oil blocks. It on behalf of the Nigerian government collects licensing fees and signature bonuses. DPR has recently issued new Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) guidelines. The government department has powers to impose fines and close down non-compliant operations.
