About Us


Regalis is a privately held E&P company established in 2012, with flagship assets in 3 highly prospective blocks in the Republic of Chad.

Exploration efforts in Blocks DOA and WD2-2008 are initially focused on low risk prospects that are on trend with existing and very recent Glencore/Caracal oil discoveries. There is existing export infrastructure adjacent to Regalis licences, which will allow for low cost and early production/monetisation of any eventual discoveries.

Regalis also has further exploration opportunities in Largeau IV Block in northern half of the country.

Regalis engaged Bridgeporth, a specialist geosciences company, which completed a 5,349 km  airborne gravity/magnetic survey in October-November over Blocks DOA and WD2-2008 in Southern Chad.

Regalis is currently planning to drill its first exploration well in Block DOA in 2015.  Regalis's assets are very similar and on trend to Glencore/Caracal, with an opportunity for similar high impact value creation.
