Abstract

Oil exploration and refining are no longer novelties !hough the technologies involved may be. Their processes are similar in most countries of the world and are operated mostly b1· the same multinational companies (MNCs). The host communities even share the same pride of housing such productive and economically viable industry, with high expectations of development. Though the main aim of MNCs is to make profit, this canna! be achieved effectively withou/ a favourable relationship with their host communities. This study examines the relalionship between Shell. Chevron and Agip and jive host communities (Omoku, Obrikom, Eruemukohwarien, Tisun and Kolokolo) in Nigeria's Niger Della from the perspective of !he slakeholder theory. The findings reveal !hal Agip enjoyed a bel/er relationship with its host communit{es than Shell and Chevron. The study recommends that MNCs · should elevate their host communities from the diffused publics to the jimctional publics ' status
