BARON OIL PLC is an independent oil and gas exploration and production company incorporated in the UK in April 2004 and focused on identifying oil and gas interests in Latin America, in particular Peru, and Colombia. Our company will explore for, appraise, develop and produce oil and natural gas and build up the capital value of its projects to a point where it can be monitised.

The Directors believe that their broad collective experience in the area of mergers and acquisitions and corporate and financial management as well as a profound business experience and knowledge of the South American environment in relation to small and medium sized businesses will assist them in the identification and evaluation of acquisition opportunities.
