Launched in 2008 Springfield Group has been driven by passion, vision and ambition and guided by our history. Since commencing operations the group has become one of the pioneers, key players in the oil and gas industry.
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 over a period of 5 years supplied about 12.5% of Ghana’s petroleum product requirements and was a leading exporter of refined products to neighboring land-locked countries like 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 April 2017 Springfield, which is a wholly-owned Ghanaian company, contracted the world’s largest seismic vessel, the Ramform Titan owned by Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) to undertake a 3-D seismic data acquisition on its Block.
In 2018 Springfield E&P Schlumberger, CGG and other reputable companies to undertake analysis of data gathered from its seismic exploration on its Block and the outcome of that exercise led to the company’s maiden drilling of the Afina-1 well.
In 2019 the Group’s subsidiary, Springfield Exploration and Production Limited (SEP) signed a rig contract with Stena Drilling, one of the world’s foremost drilling contractors and made history by becoming the first independent African company to drill in deep water.
Springfield utilized the Stena Forth for its campaign in October and firmed up further drilling locations on the highly prospective WCTP Block 2.
