Operating globally


We have a growing presence in Africa. We work closely with national oil companies across the continent to help them optimise the value of their crude oil and to provide an efficient and reliable supply of key products to these growing markets. In addition, we are investing in infrastructure, including more than 2,600 service stations and over 1.7 million cubic metres of storage across Africa, as well as a unique gas-to-power project in Ghana, in collaboration with Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), Eni and the World Bank.

The Americas

Representing one fifth of the world’s consumption, and a major producer, the U.S. market is now a key player in the global energy markets. Vitol has a long-established presence across the Americas. From our main office in Houston, we manage trade flows within, as well as to and from, the continent. Our extensive infrastructure enables us to optimise the flow of crude oil and petroleum products. We are a major participant in other key markets, including power and gas. Additionally, we have a network serving refined products throughout Texas, the Gulf Coast, and Mid-Continent.


From a number of key locations around Europe, our European operations work closely with offices worldwide, supplying crude and products to refineries, industrials and retail networks. As well as having a significant physical presence in key energy hubs within the region, we are invested in four European refineries and a diverse portfolio of storage assets. We also supply Europe’s power sector and are actively involved in regional LNG, gas and power markets.


Vitol Aviation has been supplying jet fuel in the Antarctic for almost four years. Operating in this challenging environment requires the highest standards in product quality, handling, engineering and logistical expertise as temperatures can drop below -47C. The jet fuel we supply is held for commercial operations as well as for use in scientific projects and as emergency reserves. The environmental management and crucial fuel quality responsibilities remain under Vitol Aviation’s constant supervision and management.
