Something About Company
Who we are
Seplat is an independent indigenous Nigerian upstream exploration and production company with a focus on Nigeria. The Company is listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE ticker: SEPLAT) and main market of the London Stock Exchange (LSE ticker: SEPL).
Since Seplat acquired its first blocks and commenced production in 2010, the Company has increased oil and gas production and grown reserves in each year of operation and is today widely recognised as a leading Nigerian independent oil and gas operator. Underpinning Seplat is a strong balance sheet and profitable production base with a balanced mix of oil and gas.
What we do
Seplat is a leading independent oil and natural gas producer in the prolific Niger Delta area of Nigeria. The Company’s focus is on maximising hydrocarbon production and recovery from its existing assets, acquiring and farming into new opportunities in Nigeria (specifically those which offer production, cash flow and reserve replacement potential, with a particular focus on the onshore and shallow water offshore areas) and realizing the upside potential within its portfolio through exploration and appraisal activities.
The only Nigerian company fully listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange and London Stock Exchange
In April 2014, Seplat completed the first ever dual listing on both the London Stock Exchange and the Nigerian Stock Exchange. Seplat raised US$535 million in an initial public offering that ranked as the largest for a sub-Saharan Africa company since 2008 and the second largest ever for a Nigerian company, demonstrating the international investor appetite for leading Nigerian indigenous players in the oil and gas sector.
The capital raised allowed Seplat to further implement the Company’s business strategy, including the acquisition of additional blocks.
A strong track record
Seplat has a strong reserve base and proven track record of converting contingent resources to reserves. The management team has also achieved a consistent increase in gross operated oil production and boasts a record of value-accretive acquisitions.
Since making its first acquisition in 2010, Seplat has risen to become a leading indigenous oil and gas operator in Nigeria. The Company has increased its production and reserves year on year and has consistently grown revenues and profits since it commenced operations. Gross operated liquids production at OMLs 4, 38 and 41 at the time of acquisition was 14,000 bopd. Through the implementation of a focused re-development work programme and drilling campaign, the Company grew this to a peak rate of over 84,000 bopd, representing a six-fold increase and significantly ahead of the peak rate achieved by the previous operator of approximately 56,000 bopd in 1996.
Alongside its oil business, the Company has successfully established itself as the pre-eminent supplier of natural gas to the domestic market in Nigeria through substantial investments made in the commercialisation, development and monetisation of the substantial gas reserves that exist on its blocks.
Whilst natural gas was commonly viewed as a by-product from oil production in previous years, Seplat was quick to see the opportunity of the increasing importance of natural gas as a key source of energy for Nigeria. The Company has responded by investing in the installation of dedicated gas production and processing facilities and the drilling of gas production wells to meet domestic supply obligations and provide feedstock to power projects that will help increase Nigeria’s power generation capacity. Rather than being the by-product, natural gas for Seplat is a valuable primary commodity in its own right that will form a significant component of its future growth and success in Nigeria.
