Mission & Strategies

Pan African Oil’s mission statement is as follows:


“To deliver superior shareholder value by capturing, operating, and growing high-potential petroleum projects within sub-Saharan Africa”.


The company has developed a number of strategies and tactics to accomplish this mission:

  • Be an early or first mover in emerging plays or basins
  • Look for missed opportunities or unrecognized upside in established plays or basins
  • Manage risk by developing a diverse portfolio of projects, including low risk production/development opportunities as well as high-risk/high-reward exploration opportunities
  • Ensure the safe operation of all our projects through HSE best practices
  • Capture opportunities that have a low or manageable capital requirement and have the potential to add value
  • Maintain a competitive cost structure by minimizing overhead and by the efficient utilization of emerging technologies
