Arthur Millholland, President & CEO, commented:
"Our Company had a remarkable year in 2020. The first half of the year was difficult, but was truly outstanding at year-end. The acquisition of Atomic Oil and Gas LLC which closed in March of this year was transformative for COPL. In 2020 we managed to recapitalize the Company which allowed for the acquisition of Atomic and the associated equity and debt financings. We look forward to the Q1 2021 reporting as it will be the first one to include the operating results of our Atomic group as well as an update on their operations."
About the Company:
COPL is an international oil and gas exploration, development and production company actively pursuing opportunities in the United States with operations in Converse County Wyoming, and in sub-Saharan Africa through its ShoreCan joint venture company in Nigeria, and independently in other countries.

The forward-looking statements contained herein are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by the Company, including, but not limited to, the ability to raise the necessary funding for operations, delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures. Although the Company believes that the expectations and assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements since the Company can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct since forward-looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties most of which are beyond the control of Canadian Overseas Petroleum Ltd. For example, the uncertainty of reserve estimates, the uncertainty of estimates and projections relating to production, cost overruns, health and safety issues, political and environmental risks, commodity price and exchange rate fluctuations, changes in legislation affecting the oil and gas industry could cause actual results to vary materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking information.
