Junior explorer Mediterranean Oil & Gas (MOG) reported Thursday that it and its partner, Genel Energy, have reached an agreement with the Government of Malta for a six-month extension to the production sharing contract that covers Area 4 Blocks 4,5,6 and 7.
The extension will give the contractors to the PSC sufficient time to complete the exploration drilling activities that are scheduled to start during the first quarter of 2014. With the extension, the expiry of the first exploration period for the PSC is now July 17 2014.
MOG Chief Executive Dr Bill Higgs commented in a company statement:
