I once had an experience with them when they were looking for bonny light crude oil allocation in Nigeria.

I invited them, took them to NNPC and everything went well. But I don't know about their sincerity selling to end buyers.

However, if you have a bonny light crude oil buyer, please contact me..
No monetary payment is involved.

Please i'm not using a proxy..but using opera to browse.
Ceran is a valid company, though you meet alot of people in the oil and gas industry who impersonates the real allottees (seller) or the real buyer.

It is very common.
I used the bellow for the to buy BLCO from Nigeria NNPC.

They wrote a formal loi.
Attached their proof of fund.
Attached their ATV (authority to verify fund)
Certificate of business registration. Etc.

After the above verifying the above, NNPC/seller released spa to them and they signed and sent back a copy. they were invited to Nigeria for paper documentation and round table discussion.

They issued banking instrument and the allocation was transferred to their name.

I don't know how faithful they are in dealings with their buyers.....

You did not answer my question when the oil producers have no need to find buyers.

Sincerely I'm in Nigeria.

I live in Lagos Nigeria but I travelled to PORTHARCOURT, rivers state.

Why would opera hide my IP when I dont use any VPN?
This is ridiculous.

It is quite straightforward. If you are advertising for a buyer where are you obtaining oil to sell them, when the producers usually do not sell to new buyers. They already have as many buyers they can trust as they need.

Why are you looking for buyers when you cannot say where you are getting the oil from?

I will explain to you how oil and gas industry works.

NNPC is a government agency charged with oil exploration/sales/marketing.

They will appoint sellers or agents to sell products under OPEC and none OPEC quota.

OPEC quota allocation is usually small so the need for none OPEC.

None OPEC quota is drawn from joint equity reserved allocation. (This is where all political office holders are given allocation) it is used for political settlement. Also if you have a direct buyer who needed larger quantities beyond OPEC allocation will be serviced from this allocation.

Buyers who buy from OPEC quota usually pays upfront, but not so with none OPEC buyers.

None OPEC sellers will have to use proxies to sell their allocated product. These proxies could be agents, faccilitators, consultants etc. Therefore to these agents scouts for end buyers to sell the products to.

Finally, a genuine buyer can also buy none OPEC directly from NNPC but though a highly connected person.

Please note: none OPEC allocations is not openly sold because it is not confirmable on shell loyd screen window...
This type keeps oil prices relatively low...or average

For the fourth time of asking where are you obtaining oil from to supply to the buyers you are advertising for?

It seems that NNPC is not to be trusted!

KPMG Report
In December 2011, the Nigerian government permitted a forensic report conducted by KPMG to be published. The audit, commissioned by the Ministry of Finance following concerns over the NNPC's transparency, detailed the NNPC's sharp business practices, violation of regulations, illegal deductions of funds belonging to the state, and failure to account for several billions of naira that should go to the federation account.[2]
Auditors found that between 2007 and 2009 alone, the NNPC over-deducted funds in subsidy claims to the tune of N28.5 billion. It has not been able to account for the sum ever since.[3]

No one individual owns oil in Nigeria.

It is sold and controlled by NNPC.

Don't forget, individuals owns oil wells.

Go through my explanation again and again until you understand how the system works.
