Our mission is to create value for our shareholders through the development, exploration and production of oil and natural gas in various high-margin, domestic onshore play types. We will optimize shareholder value by implementing a strategy in which we focus on high rate-of-return projects and prospects, grow primarily through the “drillbit”, make selective acquisitions and divestitures of leasehold and producing properties, manage commodity price risk exposure and maintain a healthy financial condition.

In pursuing our strategy to grow and optimize shareholder value, we expect to maintain a conservative operating and financial approach and adhere to the highest standards in the industry for professionalism and integrity. We intend to maintain and grow our team of dedicated and incentivized professionals, who are committed to delivering value on behalf of our employees, shareholders, customers, vendors and the communities in which we operate.

Corporate Objective & Strategy

NAMOAG’s objective is to become a significant oil and gas producer in California by focusing on a balanced portfolio of multiple projects targeting production enhancement opportunities and moderate to high impact exploration located nearby existing discoveries:

  • creating shareholder value through organic growth opportunities;
  • the financing, appraisal, development and production of small (Marginal) & medium sized Oil & Gas fields and high impact exploration
  • partnering with leading oil and gas majors in California;
  • maintain operatorship and substantial interest (leverage) in its projects;
  • target moderate to high risk reward exploration and appraisal opportunities with near term reserves potential;
  • rapid lead times from drilling to sales revenue, transitioning from exploration to production; and
  • abundant infrastructure to support development & strong local demand and market based oil and gas commodity prices make for robust project economics
  • maintaining a strong balance sheet and disciplined asset acquisition and disposal strategy.

Exploration and Development Strategy

The company will focus on organic growth through the drill bit. The business strategy is to continue to pursue asset acquisitions through a combination of ground floor acreage acquisitions and asset deals in order to build reserves and production.

Currently the company’s portfolio in the San Joaquin Basin comprises three projects, which NAMOAG currently operates. NAMOAG will pursue an integrated strategy of exploration and development drilling in the San Joaquin Basin which will include farmin opportunities, farmout opportunities, further land acquisitions and swaps of property interests.

North American Oil and Gas Corporation is firmly committed to fostering a company culture that embraces the best practices in Corporate Governance in order to protect the interests of all those critical to our business including shareholders, employees, customers, and the community around us.

The following information provides an overview or disclosure of the Corporate Governance practices of North American Oil and Gas Corporation.

Orientation And Continuing Education:

The Board of Directors of the Company briefs all new members with the policies of the Board of Directors and other relevant corporate and business information.

Ethical Business Conduct:

The Board has found that the fiduciary duties placed on individual directors by the Company’s governing corporate legislation and the common law and the restrictions placed by applicable corporate legislation on an individual director’s participation in decisions of the Board in which the director has an interest have been sufficient to ensure that the Board operates independently of management and in the best interests of the Company.

Under the corporate legislation, a director is required to act honestly and in good faith with a view to the best interests of the Company and exercise the care, diligence and skill that a reasonably prudent person would exercise in comparable circumstances, and disclose to the Board the nature and extent of any interest of the director in any material contract or material transaction, whether made or proposed, if the director is a party to the contract or transaction, is a director or officer (or an individual acting in a similar capacity) of a party to the contract or transaction or has a material interest in a party to the contract or transaction. The director must then abstain from voting on the contract or transaction unless the contract or transaction (i) relates primarily to their remuneration as a director, officer, employee or agent of the Company or an affiliate of the Company, (ii) is for indemnity or insurance for the benefit of the director in connection with the Company, or (iii) is with an affiliate of the Company. If the director abstains from voting after disclosure of their interest, the directors approve the contract or transaction and the contract or transaction was reasonable and fair to the Company at the time it was entered into, the contract or transaction is not invalid and the director is not accountable to the Company for any profit realized from the contract or transaction. Otherwise, the director must have acted honestly and in good faith, the contract or transaction must have been reasonable and fair to the Company and the contract or transaction be approved by the shareholders by a special resolution after receiving full disclosure of its terms in order for the director to avoid such liability or the contract or transaction being invalid.

Nomination Of Directors:

The Board of Directors is responsible for identifying individuals qualified to become new Board members and recommending to the Board new director nominees for the next annual meeting of the shareholders.

New nominees must have a track record in general business management, special expertise in an area of strategic interest to the Company, the ability to devote the time required, shown support for the Company’s mission and strategic objectives, and a willingness to serve.
