Havoc is a natural resources investment group founded in 2014 by a team of geoscientists that have worked together for more than 20 years; with collectively greater than 100 years of international upstream experience.
The Havoc team has led, and participated in, highly successful oil and gas exploration in various frontier offshore projects, discovering more than 2 billion barrels of oil equivalent (boe) and raising more than US$1 billion in investment capital through their role as the founders of UK listed Fusion Oil & Gas and Ophir Energy plc, as well as Harmattan Energy Limited and various other ventures.
More recently, Havoc’s wholly owned subsidiary Harmattan Energy was the Operator of PEL 90 in the Orange Basin, Namibia immediately adjacent to the giant discoveries made by Shell and Total. Harmattan was sold to Chevron late in 2022.
The Perth-based Havoc team for the Tumbes TEA project comprises Dr Alan Stein, Dr Richard Higgins and Mr Mark Sofield. Dr Stein will lead the Havoc team and will be appointed as a Senior Advisor to the Global Board. He has more than 30 years’ experience in the international oil and gas industry. Dr Stein was one of the founding partners of the London and Perth based geoscience consultancy IKODA Limited and was the founding Managing Director of Fusion Oil & Gas plc, Ophir Energy plc and Calima Energy Limited.
Fusion was listed on the UK AIM market in 2000 and made several discoveries offshore Mauritania before being sold in 2003. In early 2004, following the sale of Fusion, Dr Stein was one of the founding executive directors of Ophir Energy plc which was listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) in 2011 for more than £1 billion – then the largest Exploration and Production (E&P) IPO in LSE history. Ophir, as operator spearheaded by Dr Stein and his team, made several material discoveries offshore Equatorial Guinea and Tanzania in excess of 18 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
Ophir’s highly successful exploration teams were overseen by Mr Mark Sofield as Ophir’s Exploration Manager, West Africa and Dr Richard Higgins as Ophir’s Exploration Manager, East Africa.
Dr Stein and the Havoc team will provide co-ordination and, where required, direction of geoscience activities undertaken in the TEA, support and assistance to the Company’s technical team, input into the proposed work programs as well as assistance with the preparation of marketing and promotional materials to support the Company in securing investor support and/or additional joint venture partners.
