Impact Oil & Gas Ltd.


Impact is a U.K.-based, privately owned, independent exploration company with a focus on finding large scale, deep water plays offshore Western and Southern Africa. These plays must be of sufficient materiality to attract partnership by industry majors with the expertise to subsequently drill.

Since acquiring its first asset offshore South Africa over a decade ago, the company expanded its asset base across the offshore margins of Southern and West Africa. It is now partnered with Shell in South Africa, CNOOC in AGC (a joint development zone between Senegal and Guinea Bissau) and TotalEnergies and QatarEnergy in Namibia and South Africa. The company’s current portfolio covers a combined area of over 180,000 km² (gross) (including an indirect interest in Block 11b/12b in South Africa).

As a pure exploration company, Impact matured a number of significant prospects across a portfolio that has, for the most part, been grown organically. Whilst Impact indirectly participated in the Brulpadda-1X and Luiperd-1X gas condensate discoveries on Block 11b/12b in South Africa in 2019 and 2020, respectively, the Venus discovery was made from Impact’s home-gown portfolio. This deep-water Cretaceous play extends from southernmost Namibia, around South Africa as far as the Durban Basin and is the focus of Impact’s exploration strategy. Impact holds a material acreage position across the entire play fairway; the results of the Venus and Graff wells have enhanced our confidence in the prospectivity seen across our southern African portfolio.
