I have written this article for students who are curious to know the list of oil companies in Nigeria and perhaps considering to study course related to Oil and Gas, graduates looking for jobs in oil companies and business persons in Nigeria will also find this article useful.

This list of Oil and Gas companies in Nigeria will not take shape without explaining the sectors within the Oil business empire. All the Oil and Gas companies listed here fall into different sectors. In Oil Business, we have 3 main sectors. Upstream, Midstream and Downstream.

Upstream Oil companies in Nigeria are those companies that focus mainly on the exploration and production of oil and natural gas. They are called upstream because they are solely involved in the actual drilling and bringing oil and natural gas resources to the surface, referred to as ‘production’. They are the foundation and all want is wells; where to locate them; how deep and how far to drill the wells; and how to design, construct, operate and manage them.

The ‘Midstream’ sector of the Oil and Gas companies in Nigeria are usually involved in the processing, storage and transportation of crude oil and natural gas before they are refined and processed into fuels and products we use every day. Midstream makes use of pipelines and all other infrastructure needed to move oil resources in a long-distance, such as pumping stations, tank trucks, rail tank cars and transcontinental tankers.

Last in this sector is Downstream. This includes everything involved in turning crude oil and natural gas into thousands of finished products we depend on every day. Some of the more obvious products are fuels like gasoline, diesel, kerosene, jet fuels, paints, dyes, fibres, heating oils artificial limbs, hearing aids, flame-retardant clothing, asphalt for building a road, rubbers, fertilizers, preservatives, containers, and plastics and many more.

In summary, the downstream sector is involved with Oil and Gas processes that occur after the production phase to the point of sale. It should be noted that some of these Oil and Gas companies in Nigeria undertake all streams of the process and are known as integrated oil companies. They engage in the exploration, production, refinement, and distribution of Oil and Gas, rather than specializing in one segment. Oil and Gas companies like Chevron and Exxon are integrated.
