Mobil Oil Nigeria (MON)

The history of Mobil Oil Nigeria plc (MON) dates back to 1907 when Socony Vacuum Oil Company began marketing operations in Nigeria, through the sale of sunflower kerosene.

In 1978, the company became a publicly quoted company and assumed its current name and status. MON posts superior returns to its shareholders and continues to lead the oil industry in efficiency and brand image.

MON is one of the six major petroleum products marketers in the country. It currently has over 200 retail outlets located in all 36 states of Nigeria; these include many state-of-the-art outlets.
