Erin Energy enters next phase of onshore Kenya exploration

Houston independent Erin Energy Corp. has entered into the next phase of onshore exploration in Kenya after being given government approval to enter the first additional exploration period (FAEP) on its L1B and L16 onshore blocks.

The company earlier this year completed the required work program for the initial exploration period of the blocks. It previously announced it had exercised its right to apply for the FAEP and move to the next phase of exploration.

The FAEP of blocks L1B and L16 is effective as of July 9 for 2 years. The minimum work program for each block includes the acquisition, processing, and interpretation of 300 sq km of 3D seismic data and the drilling of one exploration well.

Most recently, Erin Energy started production from the Oyo-7 well in OML 120 offshore Nigeria. (OGJ Online, June 18, 2015).
