Director's Message

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you, on behalf of the Board of Directors, Management and TPDC Staff to our Website. TPDC is undergoing massive reform aimed at making TPDC a stronger National Oil Company (NOC) operating for the interest of the Nation. The new TPDC will participate fully in upstream operations as well as downstream operations through its subsidiaries. At TPDC, we have a vision to become a global competitive company and a key player in the Oil and Gas industry both regionally and internationally. It is along these lines we have decided to revamp our website to give our readers relevant and updated information in the Oil and Gas subsector. I hope you will find this website useful.

Managing Director, Dr. J. P. Mataragio
