Hardman tackles stage two

Hydrocarbon explorer Hard-man Resources NL has committed to a year two seismic programme for Blocks 1, 7 and 8 offshore Mauritania in West Africa, which will commence on 21 July.

Results of the year one seismic mapping and technical study by joint venture operator, Dana Petroleum plc, identified a number of significant hydrocarbon leads in both the shallow and deep water portions of the production sharing contract areas.

Blocks 1, 7 and 8 are located to the south and north of the Woodside Petroleum and British-Borneo/Agip joint venture areas, currently subject to farmin agreements with Hardman.

The three blocks cover a large area of around 34,000 square kilometres and extend from the coastline to beyond 2,000 metres water depth.

Hardman managing director Ted Ellyard said: “The fact that significant hydrocarbon leads have now been identified in each of the three areas is encouraging and the large seismic programme planned will add further value to the project.”
