cooperation with the rest of the Lundin family, the Lundin Group of
Companies has grown into an internationally recognized group of

during the inception of Africa Energy in 2015, and he and his
family have been significant and supportive shareholders since the
Lundin's sons Harry, Adam, Jack and William said in a joint
"Our father is our biggest inspiration. His passion for
the industries to which he devoted his life was unparalleled. Lukas
saw people as the key to success and spent decades building some of
the strongest management teams in our industries. He always
strived to empower those working with him and
continuously pushed us to aim higher. We could not have had a
better father and mentor.
"Our family is deeply saddened about Lukas' passing but takes
comfort in the knowledge that his legacy will live on for
generations to come. Having worked side-by-side with Lukas for many
years, all of us look forward to continuing to build on the
successes of the companies within the Lundin Group - with the
support of our shareholders and stakeholders, not least the members
of the local communities where we operate. The companies in the
Lundin Group stand stronger than ever and the Lundin family is
united in our commitment to remain long-term shareholders."
