Launched in 2008 Springfield Group has been driven by passion, vision and ambition and guided by our history. Since commencing operations the group have become one of the pioneers, key players in the oil and gas industries.
Springfield Group from it's humble beginnings is now at the forefront of the oil industry in Ghana, with activities that span the exploration and production of oil and gas, as well as the transportation, storage and trading of hydrocarbons. Operating as a fully integrated entity across the entire value chain of the oil and gas industry.
The group quickly realised its objective of becoming one of the major pioneers in Ghana’s downstream oil and gas sector and in 2010 obtained its bulk distribution company licence from Ghana’s National Petroleum Authority for the procurement, sale and distribution of petroleum products to oil marketing companies and refineries.
Springfield currently supplies 12.5% of Ghana’s petroleum product requirements and is one of the leading exporters of refined products to the neighbouring land-locked countries of Mali and Burkina Faso.
In 2011 the Group became active in Nigeria’s downstream sector by exporting crude oil and expediting the export of new gas to liquid processing production and complex logistics to Brazil, Europe and South Korea. It has business partnerships with numerous oil majors and other high-profile participants in the downstream sector including BP, Chevron, Total, SK Energy, Braskem, Vitol, Trafigura and Glencore.
Following its acquisition of a permit to provide services to the upstream petroleum Industry in Ghana in 2011, Springfield has become heavily involved in the provision of oilfield services. It supplies vessels, logistics, subsea equipment, oil rigs, marine construction equipment and maintenance services.
In 2015, one of Springfield’s subsidiaries entered into a joint venture agreement with Aker Solutions of Norway, which is one of the largest providers of subsea equipment and services for oil well production in Ghana. The joint venture company operates as Aker Solutions Ghana Limited.
Springfield also provides tailored solutions and support services to the oil and gas industry including logistics, vehicle leasing, recruitment, staff placement and contract management (employee outsourcing services), consultancy and supply services.
Springfield entered the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry in 2016 when it was awarded its pioneer oil and gas asset by the Government of Ghana.
It is the first wholly Ghanaian-owned independent entity to be the operator and majority interest holder in West Cape Three Points Block 2(WCTP2) offshore Ghana, with the minority holders being the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation and its exploration company Explorco.
In 2019 the Group’s subsidiary Springfield Exploration and Production Ltd (SEP) signed a rig contract with Stena Drilling, one of the world’s foremost drilling contractors and is set to make history by becoming the first independent African company to drill in deep water.
Springfield is set to utilize the Stena Forth for its campaign in October and continues to work to firm up further drilling locations on the highly prospective WCTP Block 2.
