Since 1994, Spectra has served its customers with a single thought – providing the highest service levels to all our customers.

To our business customers, we aim to be predictable with our service delivery but flexible with our approach to our customers to meet your needs and help negotiate the unexpected. To our motorists we provide, fuel and amenities for your convenience.

Spectra Oil is wholly Zambian owned. Started by a team of senior managers who worked for international oil marketing companies who left Zambia in the early 1990s. This team believed in the future of Zambia and were determined to support the growth of business and industry.
Spectra now serve all industry sectors with lubricants, including mining, retail, agriculture, industrial, construction, and transport.

In 2003, we expanded our activities into fuel, marketing and selling fuel to the same industries. A year later, we entered the retail fuel market to serve motorists; and have fuel stations in Salama Park, Woodlands, Matero, Kabangwe and Kamwala South.

We have two lubricants depots in Zambia: The Lusaka depot at the Head Office in Lusaka catering for the Southern region of Zambia and Kitwe depot catering for the Northern part, and we service industry in the DRC from our office in Lubumbashi.



Spectra Oil, alongside our long-term partner Tanganyika Angling Challenge with The Frankfurt Zoological Society, will be supporting the Nsumbu Tanganyika Conservation Program, which focuses on protecting the Tanganyika Ecosystem.

2022 will mark the start of a programme focussed on understanding and raising the biodiversity of fish in Nsumbu National Park, which will long term involve supporting local communities in the area to aid in replenishing fish stock.



We invest in initiatives that impart life-changing benefits to most in-need children and their families. We support the Hydrotherapy Centre, Lusaka’s most comprehensive rehabilitation centre. The centre offers physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, speech therapy, play therapy, holistic and developmental therapies, each programme individually created for each child.
