Our strategy

LEKOIL’s pan African strategy is focused on the Dahomey Basin, the Niger Delta and new basins that offer the scope for low cost entry but where the higher risks are balanced by potential higher returns.


We have sought to create a balanced portfolio of exploration and production assets which seeks to:

  • exploit overlooked opportunities in new and existing basins
  • benefit from advantageous fiscal terms to indigenous companies
  • develop and grow regional and intra-continental relationships
  • make full use of our strong technical team and industry relationships
  • take advantage of our strong relationships in investment markets internationally
