In the gas sector, the report showed that natural gas production in the month under review increased by 6.19% at 222.23 billion cubic feet (bcf) compared with output in the previous month translating to an average production of 7,177.53 million standard cubic feet (mmscf) of gas per day.

For the period May 2020 to May 2021, a total of 2,898.34bcf of gas was produced, representing an average daily production of 7,322.94mmscf in the period.
