Negotiations, which led to the signing of this Agreement, were held between the negotiating teams of the two sides from November 2013 until January 2014. The said confidential information will be exchanged for the purpose of assisting each Government in forming an opinion on the extent of hydrocarbons discovered in each of the aforementioned specific Blocks.
