Northwest Petroleum & Gas Company Ltd was created from humble beginnings in 1998 with a vision to earn a reputable name in Nigeria’s Oil and Gas industry by being measurably efficient, responsible and competitive while working to meet Company growth and objectives within the broader Social and Economic goals of our operating environment.
From those early days to date, we have worked very hard to realize our mission to operate an efficient and technically competent Oil and Gas Company in a safe, professional and socially responsible manner.
Our business started with the supply of 200litre drums of diesel to homes, guesthouses and small branches of Banks in Lagos. We later advanced to the sale of 33,000litre trucks of diesel and 20MT of LPG to manufacturing companies such as BOC Gases, Dunlop PLC, Flour Mills of Nig Plc, BAGCO Plc and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) filling plants across Nigeria.
With strong determination and a brave corporate heartbeat, the Company sourced its supplies from NNPC depots, major oil marketing companies including Total Plc, Uni-petrol Plc (Now OandO), AP Plc (now Forte Oil) and Mobil Oil Nigeria Plc amongst others.
Today, we are humbled by our success thus far. No longer a small player in the industry; we have been one of a select few Foreign and Nigerian Companies involved in the official export of Crude Oil from Nigeria since the year 2014. We also import, store, supply and distribute refined petroleum products including Premium Motor Spirit (PMS=petrol), Automotive Gas Oil (AGO=diesel), House hold Kerosene (HHK) and Low Pour Fuel Oil (LPFO). Our global footprint continues to grow. As a dynamic business, we explore latest and most innovative low cost customer offerings
With the world market in mind, we take the import and export of petroleum products in our stride; trading globally with the same professionalism we are known for in Nigeria.
For us, doing well also means doing good. Our many Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives tell another story – the story of a proudly Nigerian Company with a warm heart and big plans to create a better Nigeria for all.
