Ebikabowei C. Dorgu

Managing Director

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the BOCL corporate website.


In recognition of Bayelsa State’s unique location with some of the largest natural deposits of oil and gas in Nigeria,the Government of Bayelsa State established Bayelsa Oil Company Limited [BOC], in the year 2000, to profitably explore and produce oil and gas resources as part of the overall strategy to increase Bayelsa State’s internally generated revenue.

BOC in its desire to become a leader in the oil and gas industry, secured interests in diverse oil and gas assets in order to increase its energy portfolio.

Today, BOC is active in the oil and gas upstream sector as an operating and non-operating partner, in joint ventures with international oil and gas companies.

His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Bayelsa State, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson in his determination to transform Bayelsa State into an oil and gas hub and a destination of choice for FDI in Nigeria and the West African sub-region has formulated an astute roadmap for reviving BOC to full profitability, increasing the State’s internally generated revenues and providing sustainable paths towards employment and wealth generation for Bayelsans.

Following my appointment as the Managing Director of BOC; I will be ensuring that the mandate given by the Chief Executive of the State to transform BOC to a profit center is realized to the maximum.

Our strategy will be to contribute to the internally generated revenue of Bayelsa State by exploiting the vast and latent oil and gas assets spread across Bayelsa State and the Niger Delta while ensuring sustainable socio-economic development.

Our Vision “is to be a foremost indigenous oil and gas company in Nigeria”. This vision will be driven by our passion “to provide world class services through excellent working relationships with our technical partners, host communities, and highly skilled workforce, leveraging on cutting edge technology to generate value to our stakeholders”.

We are excited about our prospects and are quietly confident about our ability to deliver long-term value to our stakeholders.
