Investment case

Our highly experienced leadership team has delivered transformational value for more than 20 years.

How we create value

The company seeks to create, add and realise value for stakeholders through the exploration, development and production of oil and gas within a self-funding business model. Exploration offers material value upside potential to stakeholders and production provides the cash flow to sustain exploration and development.

Reshaping the business

In 2012 Cairn made a significant return to shareholders following the sale of its Indian business and proceeded to rebuild a portfolio of assets across the UK and Norway and the Atlantic Margin. We have created a strong platform for future growth with active positions in six countries in almost 50 licences providing significant acreage positions of technical and commercial value.

Emerging and frontier basin exploration

Our exploration focus is on emerging and frontier basins along the Atlantic Margin. The discovery of the SNE field offshore Senegal in 2014 marked a landmark exploration success and provides an opportunity to implement our strategy of creating, adding and realising value for shareholders through a balanced, well-funded and sustainable company. Further, we continue to expand our portfolio with the addition of a number of exciting opportunities to generate longer term exploration value exposure.

Development and near term production

Our strategic focus is also on the mature and emerging basins in the UK and Norway whiOur strategic focus is also on the mature and emerging basins in the UK and Norway which provide near term production and future development options. We have high quality assets and the start up of the Kraken and Catcher developments is significant, as it will mark Cairn’s first production since 2012, when we sold the majority stake in our Indian business and returned the proceeds to shareholders. The mature and emerging basins of the UK and Norway provide balance to Cairn’s frontier exploration portfolio and will deliver the cash flow to sustain future exploration.

Financial strength

Funding flexibility is a core element of our strategic delivery and further growth. With a fully funded balance sheet, the company is well positioned to the prevailing oil price environment which presents challenges to the industry but also opportunities to allocate capital to value enhancing projects while benefitting from reduced operational costs.

Working responsibly

Corporate Responsibility remains at the heart of our business. We continue to prioritise the health, safety, security and wellbeing of our people while promoting safe behaviours among contractors and partners. We remain committed to protecting the environment in the areas where we operate. Good governance is also important, and we are committed to meeting all our obligations in a responsible and transparent manner.
