Finder Energy, one of Australia’s most renown offshore oil and gas exploration companies, is about to get back to what it loves most — drilling big oil-charged offshore exploration wells — but first chief executive Damon Neaves will oversee its imminent debut on the Australian Stock Exchange.

Incorporated in Perth 17 years ago, Finder has been at the forefront of numerous interesting exploration ventures in Western Australia, and for a small privately owned company its achievements and track record make it unique in Australia.
