Nigeria would increase its crude oil production if producer group OPEC requested higher output to cool soaring oil prices, state oil company NNPC said on Tuesday.

“We will do whatever OPEC asks its members to do. Whatever is needed under OPEC directives,” NNPC spokesman Levi Ajuonoma said. He said Nigeria had the spare capacity to increase its production if needed but did not state by how much.
