Nigerian oil and gas companies are major players in the transformation of the Nigerian economy as well as the growth of the global oil and gas products market, with the aim of promoting the rapid expansion of Nigerian oil and gas companies. The study examined the impact of growth strategy and performance of oil and gas companies in Nigeria 2006 - 2020 . The specific objectives were to determine the impact of strategic expansion on market share and the impact of strategic investment on return on asset. The annual financial statements of companies operating at the upstream, downstream, and midstream listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange were used for this study. The study adopted a panel research survey. Ordinary least squares regression analysis was used to test the effect of the independent variables on the dependent variables. The findings showed that strategic expansion has a positive effect on market share, while strategic investment has a positive impact on return on asset.
