The Berlanga Group of companies originated with Berlanga Holding BV, a Dutch company which invested in projects in developing markets to bring experience, knowledge, technical and financial capabilities to make substantial contributions to the economics in which it operates.

Starting from the 1990s, the Berlanga Group invested in projects in Central Asia, in countries such as Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

Investments were mainly in the oil and gas industry, but also in agriculture, mining, construction and real estate.

The Berlanga Group has offices in Singapore and Yangon.

Following successful investments in the Caspian region in 2013, Berlanga decided to widen its investment horizon to include Southeast Asia and successfully entered Myanmar and Thailand in 2013 and 2014. Berlanga announced the acquisition of interest in Thai onshore producing assets L43 and L33 from Carnarvon Petroleum. Building on its existing Caspian presence, Berlanga is now looking to broaden its strategic remit into the Caspian/Middle East Region.
