Nigeria

We have been in Nigeria since 1989 and operate an integrated oil and gas supply, storage and distribution business with some competitive advantages that have enabled us to develop and grow our niche position in this key market.

We began our presence with a majority holding in the petrol distribution company, Phoenix (renamed Oryx Oil Marketing Company Nigeria Ltd), and we have been operating a fuel storage company, Oryx Free Zone Enterprise (OFZE), in the Calabar Free Trade Zone, in southern Nigeria, since 2008. We are thus able to offer seamless and reliable products and services, as our trading arm sources the products (mainly fuel oil and diesel), Oryx Free Zone Enterprise provides storage and Oryx Oil Marketing Company Nigeria Ltd ensures product import and sale on the domestic market.

Oryx Energies is leveraging its long-standing experience in oil and gas product supply, storage and distribution in Nigeria and is increasingly diversifying its offering to respond to the needs of industrial, commercial, maritime and domestic customers. Its integrated value chain ensures a reliable supply, expertise in a cross-section of products and services and the quality for which the Oryx Energies brand stands in countries across sub-Saharan Africa.
