Investment summary

Following the unsuccessful drilling of the Mesurado-1 prospect in Liberia for which COPL and operating partner ExxonMobil have now surrendered their licence rights, the company’s focus has largely been on its activities in Nigeria. COPL’s 50%-owned subsidiary, ShoreCan, acquired an 80% interest in OPL226 offshore Nigeria – containing the Noa West oil discovery. In 2019, the company plans to secure project financing for ShoreCan which is to be completed by the end of Q219. Appraisal drilling on OPL226 is scheduled for mid-year subject to funding.
