Doing business the right way

Mocoh was born. A humble beginning, we set out as a team of two with a storage contract in Saldanha and a contract to lift condensate in South Africa.

As our portfolio grew, our focus shifted to the African east coast. We opened a satellite office in Madagascar on the back of government privatisation, acquired a base oil blending plant and an LPG distribution asset, followed swiftly by further offices in Kenya, Zimbabwe and South Sudan.

Mid-decade, our journey across the continent begun to move west, opening offices in Nigeria and Ghana, which today account for much of our turnover and investments.

A term contract to lift heavy crude from Albania saw Mocoh draw on its experience to rethink the logistics for this product (previously only ever sold in the Mediterranean), accumulating larger volumes and shipping it to India, the Far East and North America.

Meanwhile, our offices in Nigeria, which had previously focused on the private market, were building up important new local partnerships. Securing a NNPC (Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation) contract in 2017 was a springboard for developing strong, long-standing supply agreements in other West African nations.

In 2017, the mc2h foundation was established on the back of our founder’s vision to benefit the communities in which we operate. This was the beginning of what is an important philanthropic partnership for Mocoh.

In 2019, we acquired Engen’s retail network in Ghana. This is the first of many downstream assets we plan to acquire on the continent to support our ambition to be the leading energy supplier in Africa. More recently, we have established a new team in the Arabian Gulf to grow our base oil and lubricants business.
