Assala Energy’s strategy is to seek out brown-field assets where an opportunity exists to streamline operations, by making them more efficient. We are committed to long term investment and building solid returns for our shareholders and host countries.

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 operates five licences (Rabi Kounga II, Toucan II, Bende M’Bassou Totou II, Koula/Damier and Gamba/Ivinga) and holds interests in four non-operated licences (Atora, Avocette, Coucal and Tsiengui). Furthermore, we acquired in 2019 three onshore exploration licences (Mutamba-Iroru II, Nziembou II & Ozigo II), opening new development opportunities for Assala Gabon.
