Our Expertise

We have considerable oil and gas industry knowledge and experience covering the full cycle of activities from exploration through appraisal and development to production.

Our strong in-house technical team - a significant strength of Bowleven - has extensive knowledge, understanding and experience of a wide variety of petroleum provinces across the world (both onshore and offshore).

The team has a strong track record of success and has made multiple hydrocarbon discoveries in Cameroon. Experience gained in oil and gas development projects worldwide will be used in delivering first production from our interests in Cameroon.

“Our team has the skills, experience and attitude to drive Bowleven forward.”

Our exploration team and Board members have extensive experience and a track record of exploration and appraisal success in a variety of countries and petroleum provinces. A number of our team were involved in, and responsible for, the Sangu discovery in Bangladesh and multiple oil discoveries in the Rajasthan rift basin whilst at Cairn Energy.

Our operations team and Board members have extensive experience in the delivery of oil and gas development projects across various regions and over a number of years. David Clarkson, our Chief Operating Officer, brings extensive development experience to the team.

"Our combined sub-surface and operating experience has resulted in significant success with the drill-bit." 

EurOil, our Cameroon subsidiary, has operated in Cameroon since 1998 and has a proven track record in seismic acquisition and the drilling of exploration and appraisal wells. 

The current management/technical team joined the Group in 2007. Since then we have drilled 11 wells, all as operator, all of which encountered hydrocarbons.
