FAR was granted a government approval for its farm-out of blocks A2 and A5 to coventurer PETRONAS in The Gambia.

In exchange for a 40% stake, Malaysian oil industry major PETRONAS will fund 80% of exploration well costs of Samo-1 well up to a US$45 million cap.

FAR’s managing director Cath Norman said two weeks ago, “By securing the approval of the Gambian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy, FAR has achieved another milestone towards its objective of drilling the substantial oil resource potential of the highly prospective blocks A2 and A5 in The Gambia.”

The partners are expected to drill the first exploration well in the small West African country since 1979.
