Welcome to the TIMOR GAP Website,

Here you can learn about who we are and what we do. As the National Oil Company of Timor-Leste, TIMOR GAP has the mandate to conduct oil and gas business on behalf of the Timor-Leste Government. We are building an integrated oil & gas company to cover upstream and downstream activities, as well as services to the sector.

TIMOR GAP is deeply committed to the social and economic development of Timor-Leste. We contribute to our nation’s development with professional and efficient management of our resources, by developing our people through skill and technological transfers, and creating jobs and business opportunities. We strive for transparency, according to the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative’s standards, for responsible social impact, and for excellent conditions in terms of quality, health, safety and environment.

In 2013 we signed our first Production Sharing Contract for offshore exploration in a joint venture with ENI and INPEX. We are now looking for an onshore exploration initiative in the south of the country. Downstream, we plan to build a refinery and an LNG plant, as well as to establish a network of retail gas stations around the country.

In supporting the implementation of 20 years National Strategic Development Plan , TIMOR GAP has also been mandated to manage and administer the Tasi Mane projects – three clusters of oil & gas infrastructure and services in the southern coast of Timor-Leste.

As it is building a strong team  & its business, TIMOR GAP is  fully committed to our ambitious vision and to driving the future of our nation.
