Range Hopeful as Seismic Operations Begin

Range Resources Limited, along with its joint venture partner Africa Oil Corporation, has begun the initial phases of seismic operations in Somalia's Dharoor Valley (northern Puntland). Approximately 2,600km of high quality 2D vibroseis will be acquired as part of a comprehensive program of exploration work in the region.

Key milestones achieved to date include:

  • Establishment of onsite camp and operational facilities
  • Successful liaison and communication initiatives with local communities and clans
  • Successful arrival of seismic equipment at Bossaso Port
  • Range reiterates that selected media reports of equipment under attack and the use of a private militia are grossly inaccurate.
