Island Oil and Gas


The San Leon Group is an international group of companies focussed on the exploration and production of oil and gas projects in Poland, Ireland, Italy, Morocco, Netherlands and North America.

The Company was incorporated in 1995 as an oil and gas exploration company. Between 1995 and 2007, its principal activity was to act as an investment vehicle. In October 2007 the Company acquired its first exploration assets, situated in Morocco.

With new management, investment and a strategy of balanced acquisition and exploration, the Company has established the portfolio of assets described in the following document.

Also in 2007, San Leon embarked on a strategic initiative by bringing in new management and investment and has actively developed a portfolio of licences and lease interests through subsidiary operations in several countries. The Company’s headquarters are in Dublin with Corporate and Operations Offices in London, Warsaw, Italy and Denver. In September 2008, the company listed on the London Stock Market (AIM). In 2009 and 2010 the company acquired Gold Point Energy and Island Oil and Gas Plc.

To maximise value and investment, the company’s objective is to differentiate itself from other oil and gas exploration companies by becoming a producer quickly and being recognised as a proactive, energetic and self-supporting entity.
