Introduction

This book is about oil extraction in Nigeria’s Niger Delta and the associated environmental and equity issues. Importantly, it is not just another contribution to the growing literature on these issues. It is, indeed, a significant new study of these issues from the perspective of international law. As is well-known, Nigeria is the 6th oil producing country within the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and the 7th oil producing country in the world. Hence, the global importance of Nigeria’s oil cannot be over-emphasised. Apart from its global importance, oil revenue is the main source of Nigeria’s annual foreign exchange earnings and contributes about 95 per cent of the country’s annual revenue.
