Notes to Editors
Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) is an AIM-listed independent oil and gas company acquiring a 56% stake in the producing Tilapia oil field in the Republic of the Congo. The Company boasts a low-cost production story in a prolific hydrocarbon region with significant exploration upside, differentiating it substantially from its E&P peers. Additionally, management's remuneration is tied to hitting production milestones, reflecting their strong focus on cost control.
Tilapia has an excellent address being located close to multi-billion barrel fields including the ENI-operated Litchendjili field; and the 5,000 bopd Minsala Marine field. Tilapia currently produces approximately 38 bopd from two near-surface intervals; has an undeveloped discovery in the lower Mengo sands with gross contingent resources of 8.1m barrels; and a deeper exploration prospect with gross prospective resources of 58.4m barrels in the productive Djeno interval from which the adjacent Minsala field produces.
