SEPLAT denies short-changing Nigerian Government

SEPLAT Petroleum Development Co PLC on Tuesday “strongly” denied it has failed to make sufficient payments owed to the Nigerian government.

SEPLAT, responding to press reports in Nigeria, said it has made all royalty, rental and penalty payments required to the government.

On Sunday, Nigeria’s Punch said Nigerian Petroleum Development Co Ltd and joint venture partner SEPLAT short-changed the state by USD1.8 billion between 2013 and 2017.

The vast majority is owed by NPDC, said Punch, but SEPLAT owes USD33.4 million.
