ExxonMobil, COPL ‘committed’ to Liberian deal

Canadian Overseas Petroleum Limited along with its partner, ExxonMobil, remain committed to completing their work program and obligations under the LB 13 amended and restated Production Sharing Contract (“PSC”) dated March 31, 2013 when the situation (with Ebola) in Liberia improves, the Canadian oil firm said today.

 

COPL said that Nigeria’s NOCAL and ExxonMobil, the operator, continue to meet regularly to discuss CSR activities and the fulfillment of the LB 13 work program. As part of that interaction process, the government of Liberia has provided its assurances that it will act under the terms of the PSC to provide NOCAL and ExxonMobil sufficient time to complete its work program, extending the current exploration period if necessary.

Arthur Millholland, President and CEO commented “We are deeply concerned for the people of Liberia as they work to overcome Ebola with the help of the international community. LB-13 is a foundation asset for the company and we look forward to returning to Liberia soon to complete exciting work already begun. The delays we are experiencing should not be considered a reflection on the prospectivity of LB-13, nor the desire of those involved to complete the drilling of the exploration well required under this phase of the PSC.”
