Edo State Oil and
Gas Producing LGA

EDSOGPADEC was established as an Interventionist Agency in the areas of Infrastructural and Human Capital Development in Oil and Gas-producing areas of Edo State.
Over the years, the exploration of Oil has been without the corresponding development of Oil and Gas Producing Areas hence, the now seeming unending Niger Delta Crisis. Hence, EDSOPADEC was formed to avoid such in the state.
As a pivotal player in the energy industry, we strive to optimize the extraction, processing, and distribution of oil and gas resources while ensuring environmental stewardship and community engagement.
