UKOG is an investment company that invests primarily in oil and gas assets located in the Weald Basin in southern England where oil and gas drilling has been taking place for well over 100 years.

Modern technologies have dramatically altered the methodology of the business – and subsequently drastically reduced the environmental impact for local communities and residents.

UKOG, thanks to its policy of investing in expert advice from the world’s major analysts, is leading the way in ensuring that any oil and gas developments are conducted with full respect to the countryside and a determination to preserve the well-being and way of life of local residents.

UKOG’s shares are listed and trade on London’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM). The current portfolio includes 9 oil and gas assets held under Petroleum Exploration and Development Licences (PEDL).  All assets are onshore.

The Company is well funded and plans to grow its core UK Weald business via developing its Markwells Wood oil discovery, appraising the Horse Hill Portland and Baxter’s Copse oil discoveries, and importantly via new exploration and acquisitions in the Weald and Isle of Wight. Our technical team is driving the “proof of concept” for the new and potentially significant Weald Kimmeridge limestone naturally-fractured oil play, demonstrated by the successful Horse Hill-1 exploration well.

We are cash generative via interests in four producing Weald oil fields: Horndean, Avington, Brockham and Lidsey.

UKOG is led by Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Stephen Sanderson and supported by Chief Operating Officer Matt Cartwright. Both have over 30 years’ experience in the industry.

We have a small but highly-experienced team, who believe strongly that truly understanding our assets is fundamental to success. That’s why we engage with global companies such as Nutech, Schlumberger and Xodus Group to provide us with the most pertinent niche expertise to help turn our discoveries into economic reality.

Our portfolio has a good balance of low risk, stable production and conventional development assets, together with higher reward exploration and tight oil development assets, offering further upside potential.

While we progress the necessary approvals to take some of our projects further, we are also exploring, at a conceptual level, how best to identify potential new sites in the Weald – sites that are located in places that would provide minimal footprint and visual impact.

We believe we are well positioned to add value to our existing assets and to explore new commercially-viable sites for the benefit of the UK’s energy security – and for the benefit of the Weald Basin and its residents.
