Application Forms

Companies wishing to extract petroleum from Ethiopia will have to negotiate a Petroleum Production Sharing Agreement (PPSA) with the Ethiopian Government. Ethiopia adopts a flexible and business-friendly approach to PPSAs, and almost all of the fiscal terms of these agreements are negotiable.

Please see this guide for more information about how to negotiate a PPSA.

A Model Production Sharing Agreement can be found here.

If you represent a company that is interested in acquiring an open block that is not on that list, please contact the MoMP who will direct you to the Director of Petroleum Licensing and Administration, Solomon Kassa (PhD).
