Welcome to OPTS

OPTS as an advocacy group, came into existence in August 1962 with just 3 members, and Mr. D. Fleming of then ShellBP as Chairman. Membership has however increased within the last few year from 12 in November 2007 to 22 in 2014. The members are made up of both indigenous and foreign operators in the Nigerian Petroleum Industry. The conditionality for OPTS membership as stipulated in the OPTS governance document have guided the screening and the ultimate selection of eligible applicants. There are two types of membership - Producer and Associate members.  Today, we have twelve producers and eight associate members. Our main objective is to strengthen the long-term health of the offshore and onshore oil and gas industry in Nigeria by working closely with companies across the entire sector, governments and other stakeholders to address the important issues. 

Ciro Antonio Pagano, OPTS Chairman

OPTS has also been true partners in progress with Nigeria.   Aside from our members being key employers of labour in the country, the upstream industry has also made significant contribution towards socio-economic development of the country.
