Andrew Knott, CEO of Savannah Energy, said: "I am very pleased with the performance of our business to date so far this year. By taking decisive action we have managed to successfully navigate the oil price downturn and the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have also been able to significantly increase our daily gas production in Nigeria reinforcing Savannah's status as Nigeria's most reliable sources of gas-to-power, at a time when the in-country gas-to-power shortage has increased by 42%."

Andrew added “I am very proud of our Company's efforts during this difficult time and I look forward to sharing further updates with our stakeholders in due course.
Whilst it is frustrating that we have had to delay the publication of our 2019 Annual Results, I can confirm that there are no issues with the audit. The impact of the Covid-19 lockdown in our countries of operation has meant that we will now look to publish them later in July 2020."
