About Us

Vanoil currently holds oil and gas interests in Kenya, and the Seychelles summarized below:


Vanoil's onshore Kenya property, approximately 24,960 km2 (pre 35% relinquishment that is awaiting approval), was acquired in October, 2007 concurrent with the execution of two Production Sharing Contracts with the Government of Kenya. The properties are designated as Block 3A and 3B and are analogous to the prolific Melut and Muglad basins in Southern Sudan. These exploration assets are located on the same East African rift system as the billion barrel discovery made by Heritage in 2007.


Vanoil holds a 25% working interest in Seychelles Areas A and B with its partner Afren. Areas A and B comprise 14,319 km2 in total and are located on the Seychelles micro-continent in shallow to deep water in the northern half of the Seychelles plateau in a region where all of the three historic exploration wells drilled encountered oil shows and confirmed the presence of a working hydrocarbon system.
