The new company that will lead UKOG’s plans to explore for oil in Turkey inherits its name in a complex journey, thousands of miles away in southern England.
UKOG Turkey Ltd appeared on the Companies’ House register for the first time this month.
It is the latest move in UKOG’s new venture to take a 50% working interest in the Resan Licence in the south east Anatolian basin.
The name trail from the Kimmeridge formation in the Weald began in 2009 when Celtique Energie incorporated its subsidiary Celtique Energie Weald Limited.
Nearly seven years later, in June 2016, UKOG incorporated Kimmeridge Oil & Gas Limited.
That month, Celtique Energie agreed to sell Celtique Energie Weald Ltd to UKOG.
In August 2016, Companies House recorded that Celtique Energie Limited was renamed Kimmeridge Oil & Gas Limited, which itself was renamed Kimmeridge Energy Limited.
In July 2018, Kimmeridge Energy Limited changed its name to UKOG (KOGL) Limited.
In 2019, UKOG (KOGL) Ltd was a dormant company with £1 in the bank. But on 10 September 2020, UKOG (KOGL) Ltd changed its name to UKOG Turkey Ltd.
