1.Nigeria has now agreed to increase the term contract from 1.7 million tonnes per annum to three million tonnes in 2016,” Mr. Pradhan said on the sidelines of the fourth India- Africa Hydrocarbon Summit in New Delhi.

2.Nigeria is the third-largest contributor to India’s oil imports, accounting for 11.59 million tonnes (MT) in the first half of this financial year, behind Saudi Arabia (19.56 MT) and Iraq (17.01 MT).

3.The benefit of a term contract is that not only does it assure a certain quantity to be supplied but also ensures a stable price unlike oil bought from spot markets whose price can fluctuate drastically.

4.Apart from Nigeria, Sudan also wants to increase its engagement with India.
