About us

Overview

Mega Petroleum Group is fast becoming one of the most successful traders in the world’s energy marketplace. We have combined all the components of traditional business practices into an organization that excels in product, customer service, supply resources, and market information.

 

Customer Service

Mega Petroleum Group believes that customer service is priority number one. We provide all the support and information needed, and exercise hands on management from contracting to discharge. We are there to be sure that the customer experience with our company is complete and gives them the confidence found in a world class business with us, including our procedures, forms, and processes. We are always developing our systems to meet the latest developments and in Q1 of 2016 plan to release our customer tracking module that will allow customer tracking of shipments and contracts from beginning to end.

 

Resources

Mega Petroleum Group is rapidly developing new sources for fuel to supply our current and future demands. We strive to provide products to our customers that are, stable and consistent in both delivery, and quality. As new relationships are developed, we provide our potential customers with the ability to lift product and contract for the long term.

 

Our Customers

We only entertain contracts with direct buyers and their mandates that are ready to lift product at the time of inquiry and that are able to show proof of funds, and willingness to adhere to our procedures. We utilize our professional expertise and organizational skills to provide services to our customers.

Each contract we enter will take several man hours to verify the client, allocate the product, and make the arrangements to facilitate, before we approve, and commence the process. We do not invest this time, energy, cost, and commitment on contracts that cannot or will not be able to close. The buyer must be willing to show their ability to purchase the fuel.

We are also very aware of the secondary market and support it fully. We provide avenues for the secondary market to close and profit from contracts, as we do. Our due diligence procedures are very strict and we do not deviate from them. As a reliable partner we are helping to buy and sell crude oil and petroleum products. This market is very large and we try to satisfy the requirements of buyers.

We want to focus your attention to the fact that we are not working as a marketing company, or a broker. We are a true buyer and reseller of petroleum products.

 

Business Model

Mega Petroleum Group is engaged in the wholesale purchase and distribution of finished petroleum products. We earn profits by selling products at competitive prices with timely delivery to transportation companies, airlines, sovereign countries and various other buyers. As a true reseller we are in the position to utilize our own funds as well as funds from our Joint Venture Partners to purchase the fuel and resell to our end customers with neither side having contact or negotiations with the other. Outside of our regular private contracted customers we strive to identify real purchasers of petroleum products. We find allocations of product that match the buyer’s needs, purchase them, and in turn, resell them to our buyers. Mega Petroleum Group’s management team, has the dedicated staffing needed to facilitate contracts and procedures with utmost efficiency. This combination of in-house funding and strong management is allowing Mega Petroleum Group to become a leader, as a reseller, in the petroleum industry.
