An oil mining lease may be granted only to the holder of an oil prospecting licence who hassatisfied all the conditions imposed on the licence or otherwise imposed on him by the petroleum Act; and who have been discovered in commercial quantities by the holder of an oil prospecting licence if the Minister, upon evidence adduced by the licensee, is satisfied that the licensee is capable of producing at least 10,000 barrels per day of crude oil from the licensed area.

A licensee who has fulfilled the work commitment according to Paragraph 30(b) and 31 of the Petroleum (Drilling and Production) Regulations of 1969 and the conditions otherwise applicable to the individual license may request that the license be converted to an OML.

  • The OML grants exclusive rights to explore, win, produce and carry away petroleum from the relevant area.

The regulation size is 50% of the OPL, the other 50% of which shall revert to DPR(unless less than 250 sq. km in area) and the specified duration is 20 years.
