Founder Chairman's Message

“ A century ago, petroleum was just an obscure commodity but today it is essential to human development.
Energy is the pillar of a nation's economy and there can be no meaningful economic development without adequate and supply of energy.
Our business knows no frontier; we are prepared and equipped to take on the most difficult challenges, thanks to our expertise, our trained and highly experienced work force and our strong finances.
While we remain focused on upstream oil and gas exploration and production, we have expanded into other sectors, such as Electronic Media and Information Services, Power Generation, Mining and Security Services.
We uphold the highest standards of transparency, accountability and good governance in all our ventures.
I am convinced that our business acumen as well as the technical expertise of our dedicated team of professionals and use of cutting edge technology are the factors which have contributed much of our success.
PEL strives to contribute to the global energy industry while promoting employment opportunities, both at home and abroad. PEL takes its social responsibilities most seriously while consistently striving to leave a positive footprint in communities where it is engaged in the search for hydrocarbons. ”
