[Forbes] LAGOS — At the first glance, Nigeria does not appear particularly alluring to international investors. The country’s important oil industry is in the doldrums with crude production stagnating at around 2 million barrels per day. Oil investment is held back by the failure to pass a key reform bill. Pervasive theft of crude oil is nibbling away at onshore oil pipelines as well as export figures. Previously a major crude oil exporter to the US, Nigeria’s share of US oil imports has dropped 11 to 5 percent in the last year.
