“We have made significant progress in the past 12 months and have a clear plan for the next,” said Richard Liddell, FOGL’s chairman. “We have just completed a further 2D seismic survey taking the total amount of 2D seismic recorded by FOGL to 22,450km. The data is still to be fully evaluated but initial indications are highly encouraging. Within the licenses there are multiple hydrocarbon plays, numerous prospects and leads with the potential for multi-billion barrel discoveries. The board is confident that FOGL can continue to progress the project at pace and remains hopeful of discovering a major new petroleum province in the region.”
