Oil exploration and exploitation in Nigeria have evolved through a long history. However, they have left
trail of woes in their path with so much damage to the ecosystem and problems to human life in the
exploration region. In the light of this, the paper appraises the implications of oil exploration and
exploitation in the coastal region of Ondo State. Data used in the paper were obtained through physical
verification, regular observations, constant monitoring, documentation and records of oral history and
administration of questionnaire in some selected settlements in the region. The paper highlighted
several direct environmental and associated problems that emanated from oil exploration and
exploitation in the region. The problems identified among others include large-scale environmental
pollution and degradation of agricultural land which serves as source of income for the people coupled
with social unrest arising from unpaid claims of compensation and lack of concern for the people in the
exploration area. The paper advocates for oil spill management plan, control and clearance of spills;
giving concessions to indigenous oil companies during biding process by granting licenses to operate
in the Niger-Delta region; adoption of long-term monitoring and surveillance mechanism; continuous
provision of infrastructure for the host communities by prospecting oil companies; and development of
national oil spill contingency plan among others with a view to guarantee sustainable development of
the environment in the region.
