When asked to comment, Neil Moore, president for SCS, stated, "There are two targets in shallow water that are primarily gas at a drilling depth of 1500 meters. There are also two targets in slightly deeper water at 2800 meters that are potentially both oil and gas. The oil and gas is of extreme interest to the country considering The Republic of Guinea has some of the richest mineral deposits in the world but has no energy onshore. A major find of energy offshore would have a very positive impact on the people of Guinea." We look forward to this wonderful opportunity to play a part in the energy development of their country.
