Hindustan Oil Exploration

Hindustan Oil Exploration Company Ltd (HOEC) is engaged in the exploration, development and production of crude oil and natural gas in India. Incorporated in 1983, it was the first private sector oil company to have commenced oil exploration activities in the country.

HOEC has more than three decades of experience operating multiple fields, both onshore and offshore in leading producing basins.

Currently, the company through its operations contributes 10,000 BoE (barrel of oil equivalent) of products every day to the nation, from 4 of the 7 producing basins in India.

HOEC got listed on BSE after it launched its initial public offering (IPO) in 1990.

The market capitalisation of Hindustan Oil Exploration Company Limited stood at over ₹2,300 crore, as of February 12, 2024. HOEC share price has more than doubled in the last three years.
