About us

TLOC was established as a result of a decision of the Government of Ghana in 1986 to build a Lubricant Blending Plant in the country. The Government contracted Agip Petroli of Italy to design and construct the Plant.  The construction of the Plant was completed in 1991.

In line with the Government of Ghana’s policy on privatization, Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) operating in Ghana at that time were invited to form a company to buy the Plant and operate it.  The OMCs agreed and established Tema Lube Oil Company (TLOC) on October 9, 1990 to acquire the Plant.  Blending of lubricants commenced in 1992.

The current shareholders of the company are Social Security & National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) of Ghana, Total Outré Mer SA, Shell & Vivo Lubricants BV, Total (Africa) Limited of France, Ghana Oil Company Limited, Total Petroleum Ghana Limited and ENI International BV.
