“As direct beneficiaries of OSL in the early stages as former employee, and now partners in various projects, I would like to farewell a name that was synonym with oil and gas in the country for over 30 years.

“Without OSL, we couldn’t see some of those major development changes in the country through both direct and indirect investment such as tax credit schemes, direct cash injection through corporate tax, employee tax, employment opportunities and many other positive impacted through corporate social responsibility programs made over the years in the project footprints and elsewhere”, Sonk said.

Sonk said the change of guard now creates better opportunity for Kumul Petroleum as the leading host partner to Santos and other major global industry players giving prominence to the NOC while adding value to various investments as well as adding value to the industry and country itself.
