Reports obtained from the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited showed that Nigeria made about N361.43 billion from gas export and N13.36bn from domestic gas sale in 2021.
The data from the oil firm showed that the Federal Government through NNPC garnered the funds from the sale of Natural Gas Liquids/Liquefied Petroleum Gas, as well as Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas feedstock.

It, however, stated that a total receipt of $68.53m was earned from the sale of NLNG feedstock in December 2021.
