Japaul Gold and Ventures Plc, incorporated in 1994, is a Nigerian upstream service company engaged in the business of mining, oil and gas, maritime, dredging, transportation, engineering, and construction services.

Japaul Group's service portfolio includes offshore vessels owning and chartering (Japaul Shipping & Offshore Services Ltd); downstream petroleum marketing (Japaul Energy Ltd); infrastructural development (Japaul Infrastructures Ltd); mining (Japaul Mines & Products Ltd); and pipeline constructions and repairs, marine logistics/equipment fabrication and leasing and repairs (Japaul Dredging Services Ltd). Japaul's shareholders consists of over 25,000 Nigerians as the company aims to place at least 60% of marine assets in the hands of indigenous companies.
