About MEMAN

The Major Energies Marketers Association of Nigeria was established in 2001 as an MOC, to represent the collective interests of the Nigerian petroleum industry and address the distribution/ allocation challenges amongst petroleum marketers. In August 2006, The Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN) was incorporated as an advancement to standardize the affairs of the MOC, with 6 founding members:

  • African Petroleum Plc (now Ardova Plc) 
  • Chevron / Texaco (now MRS Oil Nigeria Plc)
  • Conoil Plc
  • Mobil Oil Nigeria Plc (now 11 Plc)
  • Oando Plc (now NNPC Retail Limited)
  • Total Nigeria Plc (Now TotalEnergies Marketing Nigeria Plc)

In February 2024, MOMAN transitioned to MEMAN. Sustainability has been a longstanding commitment for MEMAN, evident in our unwavering focus on safety across facilities, secure transportation, employee and community health, and environmental protection. Additionally, MEMAN has a history of prioritizing operational efficiency and the quality of our products and services. Building on these foundations, we are intensifying our efforts by placing additional emphasis on innovation and automation technology to reduce costs and product losses along the supply chain. This includes a specific focus on using and commercialising alternative energies such as solar energy at our filling stations and gas (CNG) to replace AGO in our distribution systems (trucks) and depots.

Our Role:

  • We are an accredited body representing the collective interests of members of the Major Energies Marketers Association of Nigeria.
  • We address and manage key stakeholder relations to ensure informed decisions relating to energy sectors are made.
  • We collaborate with legal regulatory agencies such as NMDPRA, NOSDRA, SON, FRSC etc. to promote and champion safe practices in the distribution and marketing of petroleum products and other alternative sources of energy in Nigeria.
  • We contribute to policy formulation in the refining, distribution and marketing of petroleum products and other alternative sources of energy in Nigeria.

The association has a team of 26 highly skilled full-time staff, 2 contract staff and 2 corps members, led by the Executive Secretary/ CEO. The MEMAN staff are independent of the member companies, who are major stakeholders - 11 Plc, Ardova Plc, Conoil Plc, MRS Oil Nigeria Plc, NNPC Retail Limited and TotalEnergies Marketing Nigeria Plc. 

The association is proficiently supported by an Advisory Board made up of Industry experts and 11 committees including the Executive Committee, made up of member companies.
