The Senate has asked the Department of Petroleum Resources to henceforth prepare and forward to it daily records of oil and gas production and sale in the country.

It was gathered that the Senate Committee on Petroleum (upstream) said the records must be submitted to it every month.

Also, the records will include those of petroleum industry activities, data on seismic activities, crude oil production, lifting, allocations, exports by destination and receipts, gas production, utilisation, sales, transmission and exports.

The chairman of the committee, Senator Tayo Alasoadura, who led members to the headquarters of the DPR in Lagos on oversight visit, said the data would give the upper chamber of the National Assembly an opportunity to have deeper knowledge of activities in the petroleum sector.
