ExxonMobil Inks Deal for Exploration in Offshore Cyrenaica Basin
Exxon Mobil confirmed that its subsidiary, ExxonMobil Libya Limited, has signed an Exploration and Production Sharing Agreement (EPSA) with Libya's National Oil Corporation to begin exploration activity offshore Libya.
The agreement covers the large Cyrenaica Basin Contract Area 44, which was awarded in the second round of EPSA IV licensing in October. The contract area comprises 2.5 million acres and is located offshore in water depths ranging from approximately 10 feet to more than 10,000 feet.
"We are pleased to be back in business in Libya with our success
in the second licensing round," said Phil Goss, President and General
Manager of ExxonMobil Libya Limited. "In the past we worked closely
with our Libyan partners to achieve many firsts in the Libyan
Petroleum industry, such as discovering and producing the first Libyan
oil field, shipping the first oil to market and building the Marsa El
Brega facility including the LNG plant. We look forward to working
with the NOC and Libyan government to achieve great successes in Libya
