The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has revoked five Oil Mining Licences, (OML), and one Oil Prospecting Licence, (OPL) belonging to five companies.

Reports has it that, in a public notice issued on Thursday, the regulatory body said the revocation was based on a presidential directive to “recover legacy debts” owed by the companies operating the licences.

The five companies affected are Pan Ocean Oil Corporation (OML 98); Allied Energy Resources Nigeria, (OML 120 and 121); Express Petroleum and Gas Company (OML 108); Cavendish Petroleum Nigeria (OML 110), and Summit Oil International (OPL 206).
