Mrs Adeosun explained that there was a revenue decline of $65.40 million in Federation export sales due to a drop in the volume of Crude oil export of 1.390 million barrels, while crude oil sales increased from $47.08 to $47.30 per barrel during the period under review. She hinged the decline in oil revenue to activities of vandals operating in the Nigeria Delta, as well as due to leakages and sabotage which impacted negatively on production.
