Seismic data review reveals Night Heron prospect offshore Liberia

Offshore staff

WEST LEEDERVILLE, Australia – African Petroleum expects to receive reprocessed data this month from a 2010 3D seismic survey offshore Liberia. This covered 5,100 sq km (1,969 sq mi) over blocks LB-08 and LB-09.

Drilling to date has led to discovery of oil in the Narina field and Bee-Eater-1, which was drilled in February. Post-drill studies are almost completed to integrate results from this well.

The 3D data is being re-mapped for the Campanian interval. A new prospect named Night Heron has been identified in the Turonian interval.

African Petroleum will use the reprocessed data to further assess identified leads and prospects – some on LB-08 are drilling candidates for the first half of 2014. The company continues farm-out discussions with various parties.

Anadarko may resume drilling around the turn of the year in neighboring LB-10.
