Mobil Oil Nigeria
The story of Mobil Oil Nigeria plc (MON) dates back to 1907 when Socony Vacuum Oil Company began marketing operations in Nigeria, through the sale of sunflower kerosene. In 1978, the company became a publicly quoted company and assumed its current name and status. MON posts superior returns to its shareholders and continues to lead the oil industry in efficiency and brand image.
MON is one of the six major petroleum products marketers in the country. It currently has over 200 retail outlets located in all 36 states of Nigeria; these include many state-of-the-art outlets.
MON is respected in the industry for its ethics and adherence to safety, health and environmental standards. It also plays a leading role in the promotion and sharing of best practices in the downstream sector of Nigeria's oil and gas industry. MON plc owns three plants located in Apapa, Lagos State, that manufacture lubes, petroleum jelly, and insecticide. Its ultra-modern lube oil plant, with a capacity of 450,000 barrels per annum is regarded as one of the most sophisticated in Africa.
