Morocco: Tarfaya oil shale area enlarged, extended

San Leon Energy PLC said Morocco’s ONHYM has awarded the company more blocks at its Tarfaya oil shale project and extended the exclusivity period of the existing acreage.

San Leon was awarded four more blocks totaling 16 sq km. Blocks 13, 14, 15, and 16 can be mined and are candidates for the application of surface retorting processes.

The blocks are in addition to San Leon’s existing 6,000 sq km awarded in 2009 under an exclusive memorandum of understanding dedicated to application of its in situ vapor extraction process (OGJ Online, Jan. 13, 2012).

ONHYM agreed to extend the duration of the exclusivity period of the original MOU for 2 years to March 2014 and to extend its scope to include application of any other ex situ (retort) process, San Leon said.
