Founded and incorporated by High Chief (Dr.) O.B. Lulu-Briggs, OON, DCF in 1992, Moni Pulo Limited (MPL) epitomizes a positive and creative response to the Nigerian government’s initiative to stimulate indigenous participation in the nation’s oil and gas industry. With its head office in Port Harcourt, Rivers State and branch offices in Lagos and London, MPL is a private indigenous oil and gas exploration and production company.


A trailblazer in the area of local content, Moni Pulo has developed its operational efficiency to international standards as sole operator of its OML 114 asset. This expertise is naturally transferred to the development and operation of its other assets, OPLs 231, 234 and 239.

The company is an upstanding corporate citizen, in full compliance with operational and fiscal regulations for the sector. Its integrity is demonstrated by its ability to readily partner with globally respected financial institutions.
