For over 50 years Oceania Gas has been serving the Pacific Islands’ unique gas needs. Formerly owned by The Linde Group and trading as BOC, the Oceania Gas name was born on 1st April 2016 when Vinod Patel Investments purchased the majority shareholding – forming a truly independent, locally owned gas supplier with its head office based in Suva, Fiji.
Primarily focused on all gas related products and services within their unique geography, Oceania Gas Limited (OGL) has built a reputation for high quality and reliability across all traditional market segments. Maintaining a leading approach to safety in the gas industry is of paramount importance to the team at OGL. Voluntarily introducing and adhering to ASNZ standards across all business activities has been the company’s most visible commitment to enhancing safe practices across the industry and throughout the Pacific Islands.
The company has an extensive network of over 100 outlets including branches and distribution partners around the Pacific Islands. With its main operation centres based in Suva (Fiji) and Apia, Samoa, OGL has a desire to continue to build on its already established local activities. Currently employing over 70 people in the region, local cylinder filling of oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide (CO2), medical air and LPG are at its core. In addition, having a full scale Dissolved Acetylene (DA) plant means that customers can trust in OGL as a supplier with the ability to meet the market’s ever-changing needs.
Abdul Ali, Operations Manager at OGL, explained that, “Keeping business activities local wherever possible is the most important thing to us here at OGL. We don’t only want to keep up with the industry; we believe we can continue to build a company that utilises leading technologies and processes which will be seen as an example to the industry from both a process excellence and safety perspective.”
