Nigeria saw its share of China’s crude oil imports shrink by 7.5 per cent last year as the world’s largest energy consumer reduced its import of Nigerian crude to 10.56 million barrels.

China’s crude import from Nigeria stood at 11.41 million barrels in 2014, data obtained on Monday from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation showed.

The country bought crude from Nigeria in five months last year, compared to nine months in 2014.

It imported its largest volume of 3.9 million barrels in October; 2.85 million barrels in February; 949,721 barrels in March; 948,024 barrels in July, and 1.9 million barrels in December.
