Equatorial Guinea: New bid round launched
The government on 6 June launched its 2016 licensing round, offering all 37 of the country’s open blocks. The launch took place in Cape Town, and roadshows will be held in London on 20-21 June, in Singapore on 20-23 September, in Istanbul during the World Energy Congress on 9-13 October and finally in Houston in November. The blocks on offer include Block A-12, which was recently relinquished by Marathon, while Glencore’s former EG-05 has been subdivided into smaller blocks.
