The companys goal is to build a successful exploration and production company that delivers material benefits to its shareholders and contributes to the development of the regions in which it works.

It aims to achieve this by targeting overlooked or emerging play types where its small team of experts can move quickly to capitalise on opportunities prior to larger industry players moving in.

The opportunities the company will seek will be based on robust technical evaluation together with informed socio-political decisions and cultural sensitivity in business relationships.
