Exploring power imbalance and stakeholder social responsibility within the Nigerian oil and gas industry

Exploring power imbalance and stakeholder social responsibility within the Nigerian oil and gas industry
Exploring power imbalance and stakeholder social responsibility within the Nigerian oil and gas industry
This paper adopts a societal view of stakeholder theory and considers the firm as a stakeholder in the upstream sector of Nigeria’s oil and gas industry. Key themes emerging from 75 interviews with industry stakeholders were ‘historical hangover’ and ‘stakeholder social ir/responsibility’. Historical hangover articulates how historical legacies of the multinational oil companies’ (MNOCs) home countries strengthen the influence of MNOCs in Nigeria; leading to a power imbalance between MNOCs and other stakeholders such as local communities. The power imbalance also arises as a consequence of the developing country context which lacks the regulatory framework present in more developed countries.

Abstract

This paper adopts a societal view of stakeholder theory and considers the firm as a stakeholder in the upstream sector of Nigeria’s oil and gas industry. Key themes emerging from 75 interviews with industry stakeholders were ‘historical hangover’ and ‘stakeholder social ir/responsibility’. Historical hangover articulates how historical legacies of the multinational oil companies’ (MNOCs) home countries strengthen the influence of MNOCs in Nigeria; leading to a power imbalance between MNOCs and other stakeholders such as local communities. The power imbalance also arises as a consequence of the developing country context which lacks the regulatory framework present in more developed countries.
