With the original sponsorship and shareholding of MEKATRADE ASIA PTE LTD, a thirty-year old fertilizer and chemical trading company, Kemoil has built a network of customers in Africa and suppliers worldwide.
Founded in March 2018 in Geneva by Daniel NDIAYE, a former head of trading and business development with a strong experience in structured trade finance and credit management, with the original sponsorship and shareholding of MEKATRADE ASIA PTE LTD.
Since 2018, KEMOIL has built a network of customers in Africa and of suppliers worldwide, enabling the company to trade with a wide range of counterparties: national oil companies, producers, majors, refiners, traders, distributors, bunkering companies, and E&P companies.
As the company grows, it aims to be a trustworthy and essential link between international major producers and suppliers of oil products, and African independent, locally owned groups, meeting the needs of the growing demand on the African continent.
In July 2021, Kemoil and PRL Global Ltd (PRL Group’s parent company) entered a joint venture, thanks to PRL’s longstanding relationship with MEKATRADE ASIA PTE LTD, a thirty-year old fertiliser and chemical trading company. PRL Global Ltd acquired a 60% stake in Kemoil, providing the group many new opportunities in the African oil trading market.
Environment, Social and Governance
Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives are core business for Kemoil.
From constructing a solar water pump and teaching the locals how to grow vegetables independently and sustainably, to supporting women who are victims of violence, Kemoil aims to give back to the community through the many programs they support.
