FIRST BLOCK ACQUIRED OFF NAMIBIA
A Norwegian group has won the first exploration license under Namibia's first petroleum licensing round. Norsk Hydro AS, Den norske stats oljeselskap AS, and Saga Petroleum AS received a license on Block 1911, which covers about 11,000 sq km off northern Namibia (see map, OGJ, Apr. 8, 1991, p. 85). The agreement is to be formalized next month.
