Our vision is to be a leading international oil and gas exploration and development company with a portfolio of high quality producing assets. We are focused on minimising any impact on the environment as typified by our asset in the US which has no natural gas flaring as all produced gas is recycled and sequestered back into the ground via a miscible gas flood scheme.


Our strategy has two key elements:

  • Accelerate production at the company’s Wyoming assets through increased gas injection, drilling and development
  • Expand our activities in Sub-Saharan Africa and elsewhere by accessing exploration, un-appraised and undeveloped assets as well as producing assets


Canadian Overseas Petroleum Limited is an international oil and gas exploration, development, and production company actively pursuing opportunities in the United States and in sub-Saharan Africa though its ShoreCan joint venture company in Nigeria, and independently in other countries.

COPL’s acquisition of Atomic Oil and Gas LLC and its affiliate companies in December 2020 has had a transformational impact on the group and is significantly value enhancing. It provides an immediate and growing revenue stream and underpins the group’s strategic objectives.

We have a team of individuals who have many years of relevant industry experience and who possess a strong track record of making discoveries and bringing those to production. Our goal is to continue to expand our company by developing existing assets and securing discoveries. We specialise in exploiting oil assets in lightly explored emerging regions where large discoveries occur. We achieve this by focusing on single well unappraised discoveries in these basins and evaluating them and bringing them into production quickly and efficiently.

COPL has a strong balance sheet, secure cash flow and is now well placed to deliver increased production and enhanced revenues, profitability and shareholder value.

Our Philosophy

We have a strong, sound and rigorous approach to corporate governance which is at the heart of everything we do as a publicly traded company.

We know that in addition to our shareholders, there are many other stakeholders to whom we are responsible: our employees, contractors, partners, local and national governments, citizens and the ecosystems and environments in which we operate. We strive to conduct our company in a manner that is environmentally, economically, ethically and socially responsible to all of these stakeholders, and demonstrate that we are good stewards of the resources entrusted to us.

Our Board of Directors plays an active role in developing our corporate strategy and ensures that management has the necessary tools to successfully execute it.

Forward-Looking Statements COPL’s website contains certain forward-looking information and forward-looking statements (collectively referred to herein as “forward-looking statements”) within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities laws. Forward-looking statements are based on COPL’s current expectations, estimates, projections and assumptions that were made by COPL in light of information available at the time the statement was made and consider COPL’s experience and its perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments as well as other factors it believes are appropriate in the circumstances. Some of the forward-looking statements may be identified by words such as “objective”, “targets”, “estimates”, “anticipated”, “plans”, “goal”, “vision”, “strategy”, “expects”, “proposed”, “intention”, “continue”, “may”, “will”, “outlook”, “opportunity”, “pursuing”, “illustrative”, “projected”, “scheduled”, “believes”, “indicates”, “could”, “focus”, “should”, “would” and variations of such words and similar expressions.

Although COPL believes that the expectations and assumptions on which such forward looking statements are based are reasonable, forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements. COPL’s actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by its forward-looking statements. Risks, uncertainties and other factors that could influence the financial and operating performance of COPL include, but are not limited to, changes in general economic, market and business conditions, such as commodity prices, interest rates and currency exchange rates; fluctuations in supply and demand for COPL’s services and products; competitive actions of other companies; labour and material shortages; actions by government authorities; the level of exploration, development and production for oil and natural gas in Canada, the United States and other areas and regions in which COPL provides services and products; the occurrence of unexpected events such as fires, equipment failures and other similar events affecting COPL or other parties whose operations or assets directly or indirectly affect COPL; the potential for security breaches of COPL’s information systems by computer hackers or cyberterrorists, and the unavailability or failure of such systems to perform as anticipated as a result of such breaches; market instability affecting COPL’s ability to borrow in the capital debt markets at acceptable rates; maintaining an optimal debt to cash flow ratio; the cost of compliance with current and future environmental laws; the risk of war, hostilities, civil insurrection, political instability and terrorist threats; and other circumstances affecting revenues and expenses. The foregoing important factors are not exhaustive. The impact of any one factor on a particular forward-looking statement is not determinable with certainty as such factors are dependent upon other factors, and COPL’s course of action would depend upon its assessment of the future considering all information then available. Except as required by applicable securities laws, COPL does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statements or information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Barron Flats Unit

  • Current production c.1,450 bbl/d (gross) with a forecast rise to 5,000 bbl/d in 2023 (based on 2P reserves forecast predictions).  Reservoir simulation work suggests that additional production rates may be obtained through increased gas injection rates, proper miscible flood management and a successful development drilling program.


  • Federal Unit (Deep) (55.56% WI): 24,650 gross acres – significant upside in deeper horizons with horizontal wells

Cole Creek Unit

  • Initially, up to 17 cased oil wells (many currently suspended) will be re-completed and put back on to production in the second half of 2021.


  • Field limits will be defined by development drilling.  A miscible flood project is to tentatively start when Barron Flats flood has plateaued in production.


  • Significant upside in unit redevelopment with horizontal production wells and miscible flooding


  • Third-party reserves auditor forecast gross production rate plateau of c.3,500 bbl/d to 4,000 bbl/d under the 2P reserves case starting in 2026.  Additional production increases from a miscible flood project would be in addition to this.
