    About Swiss African Oil Company

    In December 2014,Swiss African Oil Company Limited (SWAOCO) a subsidiary of Swiss African Petroleum AG was awarded the newly defined 3,000 km2 Keta Delta Block. Pet Volta Investments Limited and GNPC are participants to this block. The fully promulgated Petroleum Agreement has an effective date of 11th March 2016. To this end, a 6½-year venture has started to locate drilling “sweet-spots” using 1,100kmline of newly acquired, modern 2D seismic data to site an initial test well to the Devonian. If this well demonstrates commercial viability, at least 150 square km of delineation 3D seismic data acquisition would validate additional drilling sites and hopefully the establishment of commercial production.
