This study examined the relationship between Organisational Support and Intention to Stay in the oil and gas companies in Rivers State. The cross sectional survey design was adopted. Based on the sampling frame, six (6) major oil companies with population of 998 were randomly selected, while the Taro Yamane's formula was used to determine the sample size of 360 employees. The Spearman Rank Order Correlation Coefficient and the Partial Correlation Coefficients were adopted for the hypotheses testing. The results of the analyses revealed that there is a positive and significant relationship between the dimensions of Organisational Support and the measures of Intention to Stay; and that of Organisational Culture watered-down both relationship between the predictor and criterion variables. The study found that for organisations to hold and retain its best hands, they must support their employees through promoting fairness, equity and justice in the work-place; supervisors should support employees towards task accomplishment and avoidance of acrimony; while Organisational Culture should encourage and show support to employees by means of enhancing maximum continuity. The study recommended that all forms of perceived injustices should be eliminated as staff might see it as an unfair practice in the organisation and that the Culture should be such that workers perceive support, care and feeling of a place in order to be motivated to stay.
