Our African footprint
The Company has a diverse portfolio of assets spanning production in Egypt, exploration and appraisal in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi and Botswana, and midstream and downstream operations including a gas pipeline project in Mozambique and an oil terminal project in Equatorial Guinea.
The Company continues to evaluate industry opportunities throughout Africa as it seeks to establish itself as a leading, full-cycle pan-African oil and gas company.
SacOil, given its strategic focus, is ideally positioned to unlock identified opportunities and to deliver value to its stakeholders given management’s intimate knowledge and experience of doing business in Africa. SacOil’s experienced Board and the executive management team have proven expertise in African oil and gas exploration, development and production, project management and finance.
