To ensure sustainable development of Nigeria’s Upstream Petroleum Resources through effective regulatory practices, while entrenching world-class professionalism, accountability, and transparency

To be a 21st Century Regulator operating in line with International best practices in the Upstream Oil and Gas sector


The attention of the Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission (NUPRC) has been drawn to the activities of some unscrupulous persons parading as officials of the NUPRC and issuing fake 'LETTERS OF APPOINTMENT' purportedly from the Commission to unsuspecting members of the public with the intent to defraud.

By this notice, the Commission hereby states unequivocally that, the NUPRC has not advertised any vacancy or embarked on any recruitment exercise. Any recruitment by the Commission will be conducted in line with extant rules governing recruitment exercise into the Public Service.

The general public is therefore advised to disregard the fake 'letters of appointment' from these unscrupulous persons or any misleading messages from them circulating on some online platforms, as anyone who deals with them does so at his or her own risk.

Information about the NUPRC and its activities are available on the Commission's verified channels:, Instagram @nuprc_ng, and Facebook @nuprchotline.

Please be guided.
