Earlier this year, the Ministry of Mines and Hydrocarbons of Equatorial Guinea launched the 2019 oil and gas licensing round in the country. These rounds are key to further boosting exploration in Equatorial Guinea.
“This forum in China is central to Equatorial Guinea’s strategy of attracting a variety of investors and companies to explore the country’s oil and gas and mineral resources,” declared H.E. Gabriel Mbaga Obiang Lima, Minister of Mines and Hydrocarbons. “We will be presenting opportunities in both licensing rounds and holding private meetings with interested investors. We are offering acreages with very high potential for world-class discoveries and also a reformed business environment that makes us very competitive internationally. We welcome all stakeholders from China and the region to come to this roadshow and engage with us on business opportunities in Equatorial Guinea.”
The forum in China will showcase 27 blocks on offer under the 2019 Oil & Gas Licensing Round, including blocks EG-23 and EG-27 (former Block R, which contains the giant Fortuna gas find) for appraisal development and 25 other blocks for exploration.
“The Chamber and our Chinese counterparts are excited to host EG Ronda’s Oil & Gas and Mining Licensing Rounds in China. Equatorial Guinea remains largely untapped and underexplored. Chinese investors are keen to engage and do good deals in the energy industry and we welcome their support,” said Mickael Vogel, AEC Director of Strategy.
