1.3 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM 

Task is the petroleum industry are divided into major categories up stream and downstream. Upstream involve the acquisition of mineral interest in properties. Exploration concluding prospect development and production of crude oil and gas)

Downstream involve transporting refining and marketing of oil, gas derivatives, the upstream sector of the petroleum industry is capital intensive and probability of not discovering of not discovering quantity is high 

Major economic assets of an oil company are its oil and gas reserve as part of effort to reduce. Basic risk in oil and gas exploration, companies engage in arrangement such as joint venture farm out carried in interest in interest button hole and dry hole agreements, production sharing agreement and others. 

The time differences between much exploration and the bringing of reserve into product often run to several years, particularly in off share location consequently, the risk of loss of capital is high. This risk is affected by the nature of the location availability of funds and government legislations

A principle type of ownership of economic interests encountered the industry as a result of the high capital out lay and high works involves is the production sharing contract (psc) 

Currently, the Nigeria national petroleum company (NNPC) through various agreement one of which is the psc.

In a pcs arrangement the company operating the venture will produce the required funding to carry out exploration development and product are set a side to cover cost oil comortised capital cost and product)profit oil are the shared among operating companies and NNPC at the agreed ratia

LITERATURE REVIEW

2.1 PLANNING FUNCTION IN AN ORGANIZATION

Planning is one of the most important functions of management.

According to Malcoln et al (1996), planning is carried out to select in advance for an organization and its functional areas future possible courses of action from among alternatives. It is to decide in advance what at certain time and how it will be accomplished. Planning is futuristic, it is an affair for the whole organization one shortcoming of the definition is that it does not specify the time limit for planning.

Savage (1990) suggested that “there are several practice who have rested interest in continue survival and prosperity of any form a problem for a corporate planner is to reconcile the competing interest  in Drucker (1963) added that all business enterprises exist to serve three main public stakeholders, the employer and customers outside the above interest, (public interest) business enterprises also meet the interest of government, the society and the community etc.

Lucey (1983) defined planning as the establishment of objectives, and the formulation, evaluation and selection of polices, strategies, tactics and action acquired to achieve these objective.

He further stated that planning , short-term operational planning, long-term planning or4 corporate planning which usually covers periods longer than one year involves the formulation, evaluation and selection of strategies through a review of the objectives and operation environment of an organization and assessment of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT).
