Who we are:

Sarir Oil Operations Company…. ”and a new chapter has begun”,

We are the newest oil and gas production company to enter the Libyan oil industry scene, yet our roots date back to the very early beginnings of this industry. Sarir Oil Operations (SOO), established as  a joint venture between the National Oil Corporation (NOC) and the German Wintershall Dea through its affiliate (Wintershall Aktiengesellschaft (WIAG).SOO is the result of two EPSA agreements signed between the two parties on the 12th of December 2019. Subsequently, SOO assumed operational responsibility in both of the contract areas 91 and 107 formally operated by WIAG.

Where we operate:

Headquartered in Tripoli, Libya, our operations cover nine oil fields across the two contract areas, Area 91 and Area 107. Both areas are located in the Sirte Basin about 1,000 kilometers southeast of the capital Tripoli, in the Al-Wahat area. The most important reservoir is the Upper Gargaf sandstone formation in the As-Sarah Field near the Jakhira oasis.

Our mission:

We believe that oil and gas will remain Libya’s primary  source of revenue and an essential resource, not just for our energy needs, but also for the growth and  development of our country for many years to come. Hence, we aim to increase our production sustainably and achieve the maximum returns possible by embracing the best oilfield practices in the industry. Additionally, our commitment to safe sustainable operations and developing and maintaining a partnership with the neighboring communities affirms SOO’s role as a pioneer in Libya’s oil and gas industry.
