60 Years And CountingThe Energy Odyssey



Groundwork For An Energy Revolution

The groundwork for an energy revolution in Antigua and Barbuda and across the broader Eastern Caribbean was laid in 1965. Natomas AND Amaco International Oil established West Indies Oil Company Ltd to capitalize on a unique business opportunity.



Business Expansion

Expansion was in our DNA. We then extended our business reach in 1972 and opened a satellite terminal operation in Canefield, Dominica.



Shares Of West Indies Oil Company

Another defining epoch would come in 2015 when the government of Antigua and Barbuda acquired the shares of West Indies Oil Company. Some of those shares were sold to Petroleum of Venezuela S.A. (PDVSA) and Chinese Company-Fancy Bridge Limited.



West Indies Oil Company Initial Public Offering (IPO)

The government of Antigua and Barbuda decided to divest 10 percent of its shares in the company to the public.  West Indies Oil Company (WIOC) acquired more than 1000 new shareholders and the company was officially listed on the Eastern Caribbean Security Exchange (ESCE) approximately one year later.
