"Exceeds experience further enhances our team's geological and geophysical abilities and provides a solid framework to complete the design and execution of the deepwater program. Israel is a great opportunity for GeoGlobal and a major focus. Executing on a preliminary drilling program in these licenses remains a near-term priority for the Company."

To date, a 400 square kilometer 3D seismic program has been acquired and processed on each license.
