First Hydrocarbon Nigeria (FHN) was established in direct response to the Nigerian government’s policy to increase indigenous participation in the Nigerian upstream oil and gas sector and is committed to deepening indigenous involvement in the sector at all levels. Nigerian companies own a significant proportion of the licences for oil blocks today, but contribute only a minimum level of working interest production to Nigeria’s economy. Our vision is to change that. FHN has a strong and growing portfolio of assets in Nigeria and has put in place a world class Nigerian senior management team with a proven track record of securing local and international financing for oil and gas assets in Nigeria and of developing assets from exploration, through to appraisal, development and production quickly. The management team are guided by an influential and experienced Board of Directors who have had significant experience and success assisting indigenous companies in Nigeria. The Company has the technical expertise, access to finance and market position required to contribute substantially to the growth of indigenous production in Nigeria.


FHN's vision is to become the Nigerian independent oil and gas company that delivers the best return for each Dollar invested.


To find, develop, produce and deliver hydrocarbons in a way that is profitable, responsible and sustainable, creating value for all our stakeholders.


We are building a business with a long-term future and one that will be resilient in an industry that continuously presents greater challenges – technical, economic, socio-political and environmental.
