Operating Licences

A company that wants to carry out oil and gas works or activities in OROGO’s jurisdiction requires an Operating Licence.

To apply for an Operating Licence, a company must provide the following information to the OROGO along with a $25 fee:

  • Legal name of the company (which will be used on the Operating Licence);
  • Name and title of contact person;
