Since 1943, when crude oil production commenced, more than 120 million barrels of oil, nearly all from the Upper Sunniland formation, have been produced from

In 1961, Shell opened its terminal, which extracted crude oil in Nigeria. Many companies such as Elf, Texaco, Golf, Mobile, and some others were involved at this point. The Oil companies created profitable alliances, set rates and even formed laws that the participants of the oil market today still make use of. The discovery of oil by the Anglo-Persian Oil Company at Masjid-i-Sulaiman in the mountains of north-western Persia in 1908; but the consensus of geological opinion at the time was that there was no oil on the Arabian peninsula, although there were rumours of an oil seepage at Qatif on the eastern seaboard of Al-Ahsa, the eastern province of Arabia. In the era of 1972-1979, exploration for commercial oil, both onshore and offshore, continued and intensified. Seventeen (17) wells were drilled, with two of the wells being onshore, one in the Accra/Keta basin and the other in the Voltaian basin. The iron and steel industry spawned new construction materials, the railroads connected the country and the discovery of oil provided a new source of fuel. The discovery of the Spindletop geyser in 1901 drove huge growth in the oil industry. Within a year, more than 1,500 oil companies had been chartered, Crude oil exploration by the petroleum industry and its transport contaminate the environment with PAHs and heavy metals due to oil spillage and leakage from pipelines, refining process, oil field installations, petroleum plants, liquid fuel distribution and storage devices, transportation equipment for petroleum products, airports, and illegal drillings in pipelines (Tiwari et al., 2011; Roy et al., 2013; Auta et al., 2014). Historically, crude oil exploration and production in Nigeria began when the nation was still under British colonialism. This leads one to wonder why the British showed the level of interest they exhibited, bearing in mind that the industrial sector was one aspect of the Nigerian economy that they were most reluctant to develop.
