Somaliland: Ministry calls attention to open acreage

The Somaliland Ministry of Mining, Energy and Water Resources in Hargeisa is offering open acreage in the country for oil and gas exploration.

Interested parties were asked to approach the ministry before being directed to TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co. for access to technical data to assist in evaluating the acreage at data rooms in Houston and Surbiton, UK.

Somaliland’s several basins lie north of Ethiopia and across the Gulf of Aden from Yemen. The Somaliland government website states that the ministry has granted Ophir Energy, Asante Oil, and Prime Resources 18 month contracts to explore land and offshore blocks.
