Growth

What will drive Petralon's growth?

Petralon adopted a three-phased growth strategy. The objective of the first phase was to launch itself into industry consciousness and build the required relationships and track record that would serve as the foundation for future activity. The target for the phase was to farm into a marginal field and deploy the investment required to commence production.
In the second phase, the Company’s growth strategy is to leverage its technical capability, established financing and potential investor relationships, positive built-up reputation, strong industry knowledge, preferential access and intelligence on potential deals to create tangible value for all stakeholders. This is Petralon’s active stage, and the target is to materially increase reserves and production through direct bids, acquisition of proven IOC assets and vital partnerships.
In the third phase, the Company’s growth strategy is focused on consolidation. The Company will focus on strategic expansion of its portfolio and take on measured exploration risk with huge upside potential, thus actively diversifying its reserves replacement strategy to include organic growth. It also will seek to directly pursue investments / asset opportunities in other African countries.
