“This year has seen our company make significant developments, we added two more exciting licences to our portfolio, listed on the London Stock Exchange, completed two placings, enjoyed success in our first drilling campaign and delivered significant value for shareholders,” Brian Larkin, CEO of United Oil and Gas, said.
