Every step of the way in the last thirty years, we have continued to live each day laying the foundation for reciprocal loyalty by setting the standards for customer satisfaction and employee engagement.
Incorporated in 1984, ASCON OIL COMPANY commenced business as an independent marketer of petroleum products in February 1985. Since then the company has developed a nationwide presence, with operations in each of the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria. Our company started operations initially in Kano and got its NNPC/PPMC bulk purchase agreement signed in 1988 as an Independent petroleum products marketer. In 1999, the company completed the construction of a bulk storage terminal at Ibru Port complex. The terminal has a capacity of 35,000 MT with a loading capacity of 3 Million litres per day. Basically, our operations cover the marketing of refined petroleum products through retail outlets (petrol filling stations), and bulk supplies to commercial and industrial consumers.
As a company responsive to the ever-growing need of a populace as large as Nigeria we, in 2010, expanded our business to include a new range of lubricants for the market. Innovating at the speed of need, we have brought the ASCON QUALITY to bear on the lubricant market and the buying public have been more than loyal to that gesture. Today, we have added aviation fuel to our range of products as ASCON AVIATION commenced operations in September 2014. This is a commitment aimed at setting a new bar of performance for a sector that has zero tolerance for errors. It is a commitment to safe air journeys.
As the world goes green, we are also looking in the direction of liquefied petroleum gas which will be a testimony of our commitment to a cleaner world. We think of your energy needs everyday. Welcome to the home of energy.
