Assala Energy takes inspiration
from its namesake.
Gabon is one of the last strongholds for African forest elephants. Assala is the local name given to smaller, individual elephants known for their vitality and tenacious character. Indeed, the forest elephant’s small size is an evolutionary achievement enabling it to be discrete, move freely and thrive in its dense forest environment.
Assala Energy aims to be a first-choice, trusted partner to our host countries and their communities.
Assala Energy puts its people first. The highly qualified management team has extensive experience in the industry, hailing from majors and juniors alike, with a focus in Africa.
Assala Energy invests to empower employees to reach their full potential, while working to the highest health and safety standards. Assala Energy supports equal opportunities employment.
