Oil was discovered in Nigeria in 1956 at Oloibiri in the Niger Delta after half a century of exploration. The discovery was made by Shell-BP, at the time the sole concessionaire. Nigeria joined the ranks of oil producers in 1958 when its first oil field came on stream producing 5,100 bpd. CSR initiatives in the Niger Delta go back to the 1960s and 1970s, when the first wave of transnational oil corporations started oil exploration and production inthe region. The Royal/Dutch Shell company, operating under the Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria, began commercial production of oil in the Niger
