Cobalt’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Joseph H. Bryant, said “We are delighted to announce the execution of the Risk Services Agreements for Blocks 9 and 21 offshore Angola. We have worked closely with Sonangol for the past several years regarding the pre-salt play offshore Angola, beginning before the announcement of the Tupi discovery offshore Brazil. We are pleased that these agreements have been signed so that we can now embark with Sonangol and the contractor group on a robust drilling program to prove the Angolan pre-salt play on these blocks as soon as possible.”
