Exploration and Production

Modern history

Hydrocarbon exploration began offshore in Liberia basin in the 1940s on the shelf. This had no success and exploration ceased until 2000 when TGS-NOPEC, directed by the newly formed National Oil Company (NOCAL), began the acquisition of 2D seismic data. This confirmed some potential for oil-bearing structures in deep water areas up to 3000m. With the installation of a transitional government in 2003, NOCAL proceeded with a licensing round modelled after the Sierra Leone round. Four offshore blocks were awarded to 3 companies.
