Frontier Oil Limited (FOL ) is an indigenous oil and gas production and development company with a proven track record of developing and bringing into production both crude oil and non-associated gas (NAG) from the Uquo Marginal field. The Company was formed in 2001 to participate in the 2003 Federal Government of Nigeria Marginal field programme through which Frontier Oil acquired the Uquo Marginal Field located in OML13, onshore Akwa Ibom state.
FOL, working with its Financial and Technical partner, has successfully brought the formerly stranded Uquo Marginal Field into production and, in doing so, created a brand new gas development, supply and distribution infrastructure in the South East Niger-Delta. In addition, FOL is the Operator of a joint venture operating a crude oil evacuation and delivery infrastructure from 3 marginal fields located in OMLs 13 & 14 to the Exxon Mobil Qua-Iboe crude oil terminal.
FOL’s experience, as Operator of the Uquo Marginal Field, spans the entire hydrocarbon value chain, from seismic acquisition all the way through to production of crude oil and non-associated natural gas. Core activities include: the development and effective deployment of Quality, Health, Safety, Security and Environmental (QHSSE) processes and systems; judicious application of industry and national codes and standards; adherence to regulatory processes and compliance with regulatory requirements; effective management of third-party service provider relationships; development of a robust and fully functional best–in-class community relations/community development program with the Uquo Marginal Field’s host communities, amongst others.
FOL is a professionally managed and committed indigenous operator with ambitions of becoming one of the leading indigenous E&P companies in Nigeria and a mid-size regional player.
