Aminex receives more time to assess deepwater leads offshore Tanzania

Offshore staff

LONDONTanzania’s Ministry of Energy and Mines has agreed to defer Aminex’s obligation to drill two exploration wells in the offshore Nyuni Area.

Earlier, Aminex gained approval to convert outstanding shallow-water 2D seismic commitments on the license to 3D seismic in the deepwater.

The company has started a re-tendering process for the proposed new 3D seismic. The deferral means the partnership now has until October 2019 to meet the work commitments of the first extension period.

Aminex is seeking to retain a balance of deep and shallow-water blocks for the subsequent work period.
