Niger only became an oil-producing nation in 2011.[1] As of March 2012 the only international oil company (IOC) currently producing oil and gas in Niger was Chinese company China National Petroleum Corporation.[2] The Russian company Gazprom[3] and the Algerian company Sonatrach[4] have both held licences to explore the Niger's reserves, whilst US company Hunt Petroleum[5] and Canadian company TVI Pacific Inc.[6] had been involved with exploration activities but have since withdrawn.
