“Lack of access to capital hinders many Nigerian companies from competing for and executing contracts effectively,” Bashir Bello, Shell’s General Manager for Government and Business Relations, said in an emailed statement on Sunday.

Shell is Nigeria’s largest producer, pumping an average of 631,000 barrels a day in 2017, about a third of nation’s output. In 2016, Shell signed a $2.2 billion accord with seven Nigerian lenders that have since disbursed around $1.5 billion of loans to more than 300 small- and medium-sized Nigerian Shell suppliers and vendors in the oil and gas industry, the company said.
