Dana petroleum will use the Atwood Hunter rig for two wells offshore Mauritania beginning in August. The first is targeting the Flamant prospect in Block 8, which is a very large carbonate structure in this under-explored area of Northern Mauritania. After Flamant the rig will move to the Aigrette prospect in Block 7. Aigrette is a structural closure some 40 km to the north of the Pelican discovery made by Dana with its first well in Block 7. The Aigrette well is targeting similar age sands to Pelican.

Offshore Kenya, the Chikyu deepwater drillship has been contracted by the joint-venture operator Woodside to enable two wells to be drilled to test the huge Sokwe and Pomboo Cretaceous age structures. Drilling is currently planned for late 2006 or early 2007.

The precise timing of the drilling in Kenya will depend on the combined partnerships' view of the weather windows at the location.

Offshore Morocco, 3D seismic has been accelerated over the North-West Safi exploration licence. The survey, which is already complete, should define drilling targets on a number of prospects identified from earlier 2D seismic, with a view to commencing drilling by late 2007.
