Current economic challenges notwithstanding, Goil has leveraged on the petroleum deregulation policy which gives Oil Marketing Companies the freedom to competitively differentiate their prices, to do well.

Goil has been one of the Oil Marketing Companies with the cheapest prices on the market since the deregulation policy started in June 2015.

“Consequently, the profit after tax of Goil, grew by 10.4 % up from GH¢20.1 million in 2014 to GH¢22.2 million in 2015. The Board is therefore pleased to recommend a dividend of GH¢0.025 per ordinary share for the 2015 financial year. This compares with GH¢0.020 in 2014”, Prof. Asomaning said.
