STRATEGIC REPORT FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 September 2020
UK Oil & Gas Plc ("UKOG" or the "Company") is an energy company currently primarily focused upon oil & gas exploration and production. We specialise in creating new geological ideas, concepts and methodologies to find and produce oil & gas from previously unexplored or overlooked rock formations within established petroleum producing provinces.
Our current operational focus is on the UK and Turkey onshore sectors, where we aim to build a sustainable oil & gas production base that can act as a springboard to further worldwide opportunities. UKOG has operated safely and environmentally responsibly in the UK since 2013.

UKOG holds the largest acreage position within the play's most prospective area or "sweet spot", covering 489 gross km².

This project is assessed to contain significantly greater discovered oil volumes than any of our UK projects and, if successful, offers potentially transformati
