Jump to: navigation, search
Welcome to the Niger Oil Almanac - the first open source reference for the Nigerien oil industry.

Learn about Niger's compliance with the EITI, how it entered a new era of oil production in 2011, or look into the environmental concerns around Uranium mining in Arlit.

This is a document that will continue to expand as articles are added by contributors in Niger and elsewhere. If you want to make a guide to the extractive industry in your country, see our three-question, two-minute questionnaire or contact us at wikiguides(at)
