The twelve companies operated by the Lundin Group are actively engaged in the exploration for and development/production of oil and gas, gold, copper, cobalt, zinc, uranium, iodine, sodium sulphate and potassium nitrate.

"Mr. Lundin received a Master of Science Degree (Department of Engineering) in 1956 from the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm and a Master of Business Administration in 1961 from the Centre d'Etudes Industrielles, Geneva. From 1957-60, Mr. Lundin was with the Royal Dutch/Shell Group in the Netherlands and Latin America. He then spent five years with Sweden's Axel Johnson Group where he was instrumental in putting the company into a North Sea consortium to participate in the 1964 round of license applications. Later he taught at the Centre d'Etudes Industrielles - an institution where he has since sponsored a chair in entrepreneurial management. He began his independent career in the fields of mining and petroleum exploration in 1971.
