Created on 1th July 1979 by the Government of Cameroon in order to ensure the availability of petroleum products throughout the country and promote the development of the economy, the Cameroonian company of oil depots (SCDP) storage and distribution in petroleum products throughout the national territory.

It is the last stage of the oil chain that allows the exploration of oil wells (SNH), from processing (SONARA) to storage (SCDP). This being so, it ensures the distribution and storage of petroleum products throughout the national territory. To this we can add as another service dedicated to it: the coloring of products and the location of storage bins to marketers.


Following his appointment as Deputy Director General of the SCDP, who spoke at the Extraordinary Council on June 29, 2018, Mr. Gabriel ETEKI EBOKOLO took office on Monday, July 02, 2018.

Upon taking office, the new DGA held a working session with the members of the enlarged Management Committee and followed up with a visit of the BESSENGUE deposit.

He insisted on the security aspects and on the need for the SCDP to fulfill the missions assigned to it, namely, to ensure that the oil products belonging to the Marketers and which are entrusted to it are secured, that the Strategic Reserves of state are in place and that the products are available throughout the country.
Mr. Gabriel ETEKI has a well-known reputation in the oil sector because of his knowledge of the issues related to this activity.
