A company formed to take forward the interests of the Dalmeny Oil Co. Ltd (1872), retaining most of the directors of the old company. The company always worked closely with the Oakbank Oil Co. Ltd. who refined the majority of the crude oil produced at Dalmeny, and in 1916 Oakbank effectively absorbed the Dalmeny by purchasing all shares in the company.

The Dalmeny Oil Co. Ltd, along with the other surviving Scottish shale oil companies, was incorporated into the Scottish Oils group in 1919, and was wound-up in 1925.
