Thursday 22nd November 2018


Impact Oil and Gas awarded “Best Independent Player in Africa” at the ‘Big Five Board Awards 2018’ ceremony held at the Royal Institution in London.  The awards are issued annually by the Africa Petroleum Club to recognise industry key-players and top performers. Previous winners of the award in the last 4 years were Anadarko, Cairn Energy and Kosmos.


Impact CEO Siraj Ahmed said..

“This award recognises the effectiveness of Impact’s ‘Frontier Deep Water’ business strategy and our ability to identify and acquire exploration licenses with high value prospects that Majors want to join. Impact will continue to develop its portfolio under this philosophy and we look forward to our partner, Total, drilling the large Venus prospect on our Namibia license in late 2019 which, if successful, will change the game for African exploration”
