About Us

Timor Resources

Timor Resources Pty Ltd is a privately owned Australian oil and gas company, incorporated in 2016, for the sole purpose of exploring for oil and gas in onshore Timor-Leste, formerly East Timor.

Timor Resources is the Operator, in two highly prospective onshore exploration blocks in Timor-Leste. In partnership with The National Oil Company TIMOR GAP, drilled the first 2 exploration wells in 2021.

Significant oil discovery was made in the second exploration well the company has drilled and efforts to appraise this discovery is underway. 2 additional exploration wells have been planned to test a number of different play types with multiple targets in each well to be drilled in later half of 2022.


What we do?

Timor Resources (the “Company”) is the operator of two Production Sharing Contracts (“PSC”) alongside joint venture (“JV”) partner, Timor Gap, the national oil company of Timor Leste.
