Oil prices kept their footing on positive grounds on Tuesday, as markets tightened on the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries' (OPEC) continuous effort to trim output and the upcoming USA sanctions against Iran.
At the current price, Nigeria generates $33.0 per barrel as excess revenue, amounting to $75.9 million per day.At the current oil price, the excess crude oil account is expected to reach $76 million per day, about 16.2 per cent, up from $65.4 million recorded in April, 2018.

The tightening market has all but eliminated a global supply overhang which depressed crude prices between late 2014 and early 2017.
Brent crude was up 20 cents at 77.32 dollars a barrel by 1315 GMT on Monday and United States light crude rose 10 cents to 70.80 dollars.
