ERHC Energy Inc. announced the start of a 2D seismic program covering at least 1,000 line kilometers on Block 11A in the Republic of Kenya. BGP Kenya Limited, one of the world's leading geophysical service companies, is carrying out the seismic acquisition.
Block 11A is located to the northwest of the Lokichar Basin where the significant Ekales-1, Agete-1, Etuka-1, Ngamia-1 and Twiga South-1 oil discoveries were made. ERHC holds a 35 percent interest in the Block after farming out a 55 percent stake to CEPSA (Compañía Española de Petróleos, S.A.U.), which is now the operator.
