20 years ago, three men had a dream, to be the forerunners of an indigenous Oil and Gas company with international standards, in Nigeria. To say they leaped would be putting it mildly, leaving the comfortable lives they had overseas, with their goals in one hand and their courage to pursue it in the other.

“If you have a dream, don’t just sit there, gather the courage to believe that you can succeed and leave no stone unturned to make it a reality”. These men are those words personified. “Plants are more courageous than almost all human beings: an orange tree would rather die than produce lemons, whereas instead of dying the average person would rather be someone they are not”, these men are as courageous as plants.

Their unwavering courage and determination drove them into attracting private equity investors towards stamping the company’s presence in the Nigeria Oil and Gas Industry by establishing Pipe threading and Valves assembly plants. They held on to a belief that the God who helped at the inception will also help to actualize this feat. (1 Samuel 17:37).

When I joined the company in 2015, I was awed by the warmth and vibrant spirit that welcomed me. Obviously, the ethics, commitment, and creativity that rang through these walls resulted from the amazing leadership from the founders.

Reflecting on the immense growth of the company, we cannot over-emphasize the contributions from the Bell Oil and Gas indefatigable management team and staff.
