Bonny Light Crude Oil


Bonny Light crude oil is a high grade of Nigerian crude oil produced in the Niger Delta basin and named after the prolific region around the city of Bonny. The very low sulfur content of Bonny Light crude makes it a highly desired grade of crude oil due to its low corrosiveness to refinery infrastructure and the lower environmental impact of its byproducts.

What We Do

Our Work

We operate in a tri-lateral position with the Seller and the Buyer. Our fiduciary position is to bring the Buyer and Seller together to execute the transaction. We neither represent the Seller nor the Buyer. We simply structure the sale working with both the buyer and seller to ensure both parties' requirements are met.

Over the last 10 years we have built extremely strong connections on ground in Port Harcourt Nigeria, ranging from military, civilian, and political connections, which has enabled us to be one of the very few foreign companies able to source and facilitate the supply and sale of Nigerian crude oils.

Since we operate within the secondary market (Off OPEC Sales), we spend a lot of time on the ground in Port Harcourt working closely with the Sellers to position new available product. Once we engage with a Buyer on a crude offer, a structure is made to accommodate the Buyer's needs. Since allocations are usually far above Buyers' requirements, we work closely with the Seller to ensure that the Buyer is completely satisfied with the terms.

Once a Buyer has engaged, they will be invited by ourselves and the Seller to visit Nigeria. This is usually supported by documentation from the Nigerian Foreign Ministry. All security and hotel arrangements are made and deals are done over the table. All payments go direct to the Seller with complete transparency throughout the entire process. Our position is to ensure that real buyers get access to Nigerian Crude oil.
