Company Overview

Aladdin Middle East Ltd. ("AME") is an independent American oil and gas exploration and production company founded in 1961 and focused on the strategic exploration and exploitation of oil and gas assets in Turkey. AME’s head office is in Wichita, Kansas, while the company's operational headquarters is located in Ankara, Turkey. Additional field offices are located at the operating sites for AME's production leases.


Today, the company holds a balanced portfolio of exploration and production assets that have short, medium and long term potential with over 300,000 hectares of onshore exploration and production licenses and leases in the Southeast Turkey Basin (North Arabian Shield).


AME has been a pivotal E & P company in the development of Turkey’s upstream sector. Through AME's efforts many underexplored basins in Turkey have been evaluated, yielding a large amount of technical and geophysical information and significant financial and social benefits for Turkey. AME has helped to bring a large number of American and European energy companies to Turkey as first time investors in the oil and gas sector.


AME is an industry leader in Turkish upstream and is the most senior private player in Turkey, second only to TPAO, the national oil company. AME’s success is a credit to our superior staff of professionals whose dedication, knowledge and skill allow AME to find new and innovative ways to develop value for our partners and investors.


AME is committed to respecting the environment, maintaining safety and upholding high standards of social responsibility throughout the company's operations. AME's success is built on technical expertise, business acumen, strong partnerships and proven ability to deliver superior results.


The Future of Aladdin Middle East


Going forward, we aim to build upon past success, acquiring more leases, drilling more wells, producing in larger quantities and adding value for our investors.  AME is striving to be an integral part of what we believe to be a transformative moment in Turkey’s oil and gas industry as new techniques and a reinvigorated desire for exploration help to unleash Turkey’s full hydrocarbon potential. The company aims to expand in the near abroad. As a part of this process we will continue to add to our assets and infrastructure and hopefully, one day soon, take the step of becoming a publicly traded company.
