Emo Oil is an Irish oil distribution brand that is based in Portlaoise and is named after a village called Emo in County Laois, Ireland. While also having a market on the UK mainland, the brand is used by several divisions of DCC Plc.
Emo Oil supplies all grades of oil to several sectors including distributors, petrol stations, commercial enterprises and direct to home heating oil users through its Emo Direct operation. Their coverage currently includes Dublin, Limerick, Westmeath, Mayo, Meath, Offaly, Kildare and Laois. The company offers 24 hour delivery, co-operative drivers, aftercare services, online ordering and the option to pay through the post office (a service currently unique to Emo Oil).

In Great Britain, Emo Oil (GB Oils) operates out of several depots and offices across England, Scotland and Wales. Like the rest of the group, this newest division has grown out of acquisitions. Most notable for this are Shell Direct and Scottish Fuels. The current managing director of Emo Oil (GB) is Sam Chambers.
DCC is the largest oil distributor in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, with an approximate market share of 9%(including transport fuels) and 20% respectively, while in the Republic of Ireland DCC Energy has approximately 8% of the market.
