LOS ANGELES, Dec. 29 -- Poland's environment ministry has given ExxonMobil Poland permission to explore for natural gas deposits in eastern and southeastern Poland.

The US firm, which obtained two 5-year licenses for conducting the related operations, plans to conduct seismic surveys and drilling in the Mazowieckie and Lubelskie provinces.

The first concession covers a 1,200 sq km area near Wolomin, northeast of Warsaw, while the second covers a 1,000-sq km area near Zamosc, in southeastern Poland.

ExxonMobil Poland paid $290,000 for the concessions, the ministry said. ExxonMobil Poland's exploration activities are expected to last 3 years.
