This phenomenon has led to the springing up of many Oil Marketing Companies (OMC’S) which of latest count has 84 OMC’S and counting. This number of OMC’s has led to the adoption of various Customer Relationship Marketing (CRM) activities and practices to outwit other competitors in the industry. Ghana Oil Company Limited (GOIL) is one of such OMC’s and the focus of this study. Our study was aimed at studying the complex concept of Customer Satisfaction in the light of the Customer Relationship Marketing practices of the company.
