Corporate Profile

The recent discovery of substantial oil reserve in Ghana has created a soaring demand for oil and petroleum products in Ghana and its neighbouring countries. Ghana is ranked fourth in Africa as the most attractive investment destination for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), mainly due to the opportunities in the oil and gas sector.

DP is an emerging global force in the Oil and Gas industry specialising in the mid-stream and down-stream sector by importing, exporting and distributing petroleum products in both wholesale and retail quantities. The company draws much of its experience and synergy from its sister company DAD Ventures (UK) which is an active member of Association for Petroleum and Explosives Administration (APEA).The growth of the African economy has frequently been linked to the richness of its untapped mineral reserves and infrastructure development.

How We Work

Working Progress

The five key characteristics leading to the success and profitability of DP are:

This will help ensure the highest level of reliability, environmental friendly, safety, and customer satisfaction


Development & implementation of cooperation’s, associations, and partnerships with other larger, more established, and highly regarded upstream and refinery companies .


Ensuring a friendly, cooperative, enjoyable, yet highly professional face to the customer.


Utilization of the latest electronic and informational technology in sales and marketing, repairs & maintenance scheduling, resource planning and operational oversight.
