The population consists of fifteen (15) oil and gas companies listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange, the sample size used was seven oil and gas companies and judgmental sampling technique was adopted for the study. Data for the study were collected through secondary source. This was analyzed with Ordinary Least Square (OLS) regression technique. And the result of the hypotheses tested revealed that there is a positive and significant relationship between capital allowance and investment decision.
