GOIL - Ghana Oil Company Limited
Ghana Oil Company Limited, popularly known as GOIL, is a Ghanaian oil and gas company. It was incorporated as a private limited liability company in June 1960 as AGIP Ghana Company Limited. The company changed its name to Ghana Oil Company Limited in 1976 subsequent to the Government of Ghana’s acquisition of the shares of AGIP SPA and Hydrocarbons Int. GOIL was eventually converted into a public company in 2007, followed by a comprehensive overhaul of the company’s brand and corporate culture in 2012. This brought about revamping of existing stations as well as the expansion of the number of service stations. The company’s main business is marketing and distribution of petroleum products in Ghana with the biggest chunk of its sales coming from the sale of diesel and gasoline. However, GOIL is actively seeking to move beyond the current frontiers to marketing and distribution of energy products in general.
