Abstract:This article focuses on the extant corporate social responsibility (CSR) practices in the oil and gas industry in Nigeria. The oil and gas sector of Nigeria has been beset by a lot of problems not limited to violence, kidnappings, eco-terrorism, and maladministration amongst others. One way of curing the inherent problems is the use of CSR by many oil multinational corporations (MNCs) operating in Nigeria. This article focuses on the Chinese oil firms operating in the oil and gas industry in Nigeria and investigates if they operate on the same basis as the Western firms. It seeks to determine whether the variants of CSR practised by non-Western firms in Nigeria have had negative or positive impacts in the oil and gas industry especially with China's contribution to Nigerian economy.
