Business Model

Plan, explore, appraise, develop, exploit, optimize, monetize

United Hydrocarbon is a private junior exploration company with all of our assets located in Chad Africa.  Our business model is based on a proven, full cycle oil and gas business cycle incorporating fiscal & socially responsible operations combined with strong technical and financial acumen to identify, select and deliver the best possible results

  • United Hydrocarbon’s business model creates shareholder value through the finding, development and exploitation of hydrocarbon resources
  • Execution of our model is underpinned by a strong team of management and technical oil & gas professionals with the right industry and region specific experience to successfully execute on our business model and generate shareholder value
  • As projects are monetized revenue will be reinvested into the planning, exploration, appraisal and development stages in order to generate an exceptional rate of return for our shareholders
  • United holds firmly to the principles of this proven model as it has created shareholder value in the past and will continue to do so into the future.

  • In January of 2014 United commenced drilling in the Doba Basin with a focus on the Belanga discovery.  In total United has four oil discoveries in the Doba Basin
