Osamede Okhomina, CEO of ADM Energy, said:
"2021 was a good year of progress for ADM Energy. It was our first full year since almost doubling our interest in the Aje Field which helped achieve a significant increase in revenues over the previous year. We also completed an acquisition giving us indirect interest in the Barracuda field, strengthening our foothold in West Africa.
"2022 is set to be an important year for the development of Aje with PetroNor expected to take a significant stake in the asset demonstrating a commitment and confidence of the potential of Aje. With PetroNor on board, the partners can push ahead with development plans to increase production at Aje.
"In parallel to Aje and Barracuda, we continue to target the acquisition of undervalued 2P reserves that can be added to our investment portfolio and have had encouraging discussions with potential partners regarding various opportunities. It remains a buyers' market as majors look to divest non-core projects presenting opportunities for companies such as ADM who have the network, expertise, and access to capital to progress projects that can potentially bring significant value creation for shareholders."
