Oil and Gas Jobs in Nigeria

Group Governance, Compliance and Risk Manager at Pan Ocean Oil Corporation (Nigeria) Limited

Pan Ocean Oil Corporation (Nigeria) Limited was incorporated in 1973 as an exploration and production company and commenced operations in August 1976 at the Ogharefe field of OML 98. At that time Pan Ocean was in Joint Venture with the Nigeria National Petroleum Company (NNPC), on-shore the northern fringe of the Niger Delta after its Oil Prospecting License OPL – 71 was converted to Oil Mining license OML-98 on December 01, 1975.

In 2007, Pan Ocean purchased another block, OPL 275 to be developed as a Production Sharing Contract (PSC). When OPL 275 comes on stream, it will increase the present production volumes. Pan Ocean is a trailblazer in the bid to achieve the gas flare out objective of the Federal Government. Since 1984, Pan Ocean went ahead with its initiative on gas utilization despite the challenges of an under developed Nigeria Gas Market.
