Roc Oil Company Limited was an international petroleum company based in Sydney, Australia.[1] The company was established in 1997 as a privately owned company by John Doran.[2] In 1999, the company went public with an IPO at the Australian Stock Exchange, and in 2004, Roc was listed on the London Stock Exchange.[1] In 2008, Roc Oil merged with Anzon Australia,[3] and in 2014 China's Fosun International conglomerate acquired Roc for AU$474 million.[4]

Roc operated oil production facilities in Mauritania, Angola, Malaysia, and China, and in 2013, its last full year of independent operation, produced 2.7 million barrels of oil or equivalent products.[4][1][2][5]
