Read More >
OVH Energy Marketing, a licensee of the Oando retail brand, has wrapped up the first phase of its support for the Federal Government’s efforts at combating COVID-19 in Nigeria.
The company’s intervention includes various donations such as N50 million towards NNPC’s collective intervention funds made through Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN), supply of test kits and the sum of N200 million as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts for the treatment of COVID-19 patients, donation of palliatives to host communities in Apapa, Onne, Ogu and Kaduna to help cushion the negative effects of COVID-19.
As part of the contribution, OVH Energy has heightened safety and hygiene standards in all its facilities to ensure protection for clients, neighbors, customers and staff on essential duty who have carried on operations.
The organization has also distributed protective masks and OVH Energy produced hand sanitizers – ‘OVH Energy Hand Sanitizer’ to all OVH Energy Marketing staff at its operations facilities and retail outlets nationwide initiating its DIY (Do it Yourself) protocols.
Speaking on this initiative, the Chief Executive Officer, Huub Stokman said, “We each have our role to play in ensuring the safe health and well-being of everyone during these unprecedented times. Our donations underscore our support for nation-wide relief efforts and we appreciate the Government’s interventions so far and are proud to collaborate to ensure that critical stakeholders such as front line staff are protected during this crisis, and to enable more tests to be carried out in order to help save lives and ultimately defeat the pandemic.”
He also added that, “the spread of the Coronavirus in Nigeria meant that we immediately triggered our BCP (Business Continuity Plan) and initiated efforts to minimize the spread as much as we could. In times like this, personal hygiene measures cannot be overemphasized. We have shared with our employees measures which they should take in order to protect themselves and families.
We have also urged them to follow directives provided by health authorities. We will continue to monitor latest developments on the situation to take appropriate measures”.
OVH Energy’s donations have also been used to improve hospital facilities and establish isolation centers in Abuja and Yola. The company has scheduled the distribution of 3000 test kits across the country in states that have been hit the hardest by COVID-19.
The company’s provision of palliatives in form of food items and other materials has fed and supported over 320 families in communities where it operates, including Onne and Ogu – Rivers State, Apapa Marine Beach & Orisunmibare – Lagos State, Ekpan –Warri and Tasu Mahuta- Kaduna respectively.

Customer Experience Necessary to Capture Benefits of Downstream Value Chain
Abuja, Nigeria; February, 2020 – Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of OVH Energy Marketing, a licensee of the Oando retail brand, Mr. Huub Stokman has called on players in the downstream sector to make improvements in customer experience, safety and operational standards if the full benefits of the downstream value chain are to be maximized.
Mr. Stokman made this call during a presentation at the just concluded Nigeria International Petroleum Summit (NIPS) in Abuja. His presentation which was titled “Sustaining Industry Momentum on Downstream: what new strategies, tactics and innovative partnership” x-rayed the key risks/challenges plaguing the downstream industry and the key levers to drive growth.
According to Mr. Stokman, the challenges with the industry range from having multiple regulatory bodies to failure of corporate governance, title ownership verification, insecurity, environment pollution, vandalism, product supply disruption, unchanging trade margins, infrastructure deficit, skills and technology gap amongst others. Critical among these challenges according to Stokman is the gap that still exists in delivering customer experience and satisfaction.
In his words, “Despite being a mature customer facing industry, research indicates that the public doesn’t perceive most players as customer-centric. The downstream business is all about the customers; consistently providing them trusted petroleum products and services, whilst operating at the highest safety and operational standards. It is imperative therefore that players in this sector strive to meet customer needs through continuous technology driven investment and innovation”.
He continued “indeed, refining is a necessary catalyst for growth and for a much needed shift from import driven supply to self-sufficiency. However, if Nigeria wants to capture the full benefits of the downstream value chain after the enhanced refining capacity comes on-stream, the other downstream sectors need to use this short time window to make improvements in customer experience and safety and operational standards; driven by technology. This will only be possible through major investments which are not feasible at current margins”.
Meanwhile, OVH Energy Marketing emerged winner of the Downstream Company of the Year and Midstream Company of the Year awards at the opening ceremony of the Nigeria Petroleum Summit. Commenting on this, Chief Operating Officer, OVH Energy, Mumuni Dagazau, said, “the awards reflect our consistency in providing and delivering solutions to improve the sector and satisfy our customers across the value chain. Our pledge is to continue to innovate and to deliver higher fuel standards and product quality”.
The Nigeria Petroleum International Summit (NIPS) is Nigeria’s official petroleum event designed as a meeting place for the oil and gas industry to introduce new technologies and share ideas that will lead to the development of new strategies; whilst providing a networking platform for decision makers in both public and private sectors.
