This is a confidential business offer from the oil rich Sao Tome and Principe .
Please ensure that you reply this email strictly at
make this introduction based on my regard for your credibility. My name is Engr. Pedro Carlos. I work with the Sao Tome and Principe national petroleum agency.
To be precise, I oversee the issuance of oil allocation license for our oil company.My position in the agency entitles me to recommend oil allocation bidders and actualize oil lifting and exploration allocation licenses to my candidates based on my interest. I also oversea and approve the issuance of the license for oil allocation in our company and also monitor the lifting procedures in our company.
In January 2007, I facilitated and actualized the license of a candidate. A business man from Korea (Comprehensive details to be provided subsequently) . The license was for 1 years at 24 million BBLS/12 months. Incidentally the candidate was no more.
The license has been valid till date (as I always ensure that I keep to my side of the bargain), I have decided to begin using the license from Febuary this year. I am in need of a partner from your country whom I can trust. I will package this partner as the allocation license beneficiary and assign the license to this partner. Due to my position in the petroleum agency, I cannot handle this position. Your profile fits into the criteria of a partner I need. This is why I am contacting you. With the trend of events in Sao Tome and Principe , we shall be able to lift a minimum of 
300,000 barrels of SLCO per month . This will fetch us an average of US$12 million per month. And we have from 
Febuary 2008 up until Febuary 2009 to lift crude oil which will fetch us approximately (12) x (7) Million dollars. which is approximately 84 Million dollars for the rest of the time of the license allocation.  I have already a buyers who are waiting and would be ready to  scramble for any number of barrels we lift. Also I will oversee all lifting procedures with the available mercenary around. This is what I propose:
1. Your company profile shall be used in place of the initial license Operator . This I shall handle with my capacity in the company.
2. I will ensure that your company's profile is recognized as the current license operator and that we have a mandate for at least min of 300,000 barrels per month, a maximum of 500,000 barrels per month.Starting from Febuary this year
3. I will ensure that all lifting procedures are in place and buyers readily available to purchase the product.
4. You shall stand in as the license operator for all lifting and sales transactions; we shall open an account for the receipt of the oil sale proceeds in which both of us shall be signatories to the account.
5. We shall split the oil sale proceeds in the ratio of 60:40 equity shares. I shall be entitled to 60% share while your company shall be entitled to 40% share.
Please note: no third party arrangement shall be allowed.
I believe you are a man of wisdom and intelligence.This offer I make to you is based on utmost good faith. I could be jeopardizing my position in the agency is word of this goes out. Therefore without mincing words, I rely on you for utmost confidentiality on every bit of detail relating to this transaction.
Please reply this email strictly at I am in Saudi Arabia at the moment waiting for your response. Upon your positive response, I will be willing to forward to you proof of my proposition and my personal identity. Also I shall fly back to Sao Tome and Principe and from there we shall commence operations.
