GB Petroleum Plc announced that its local branch – GBP Exploration Maroc- has been awarded three exploration blocks in Morocco. Two of the blocks - Agadir Maritime I and Agadir Maritime II - are Exploration Permits and lie offshore. The third block - Ouest Souss - is an onshore Reconnaissance Licence and lies immediately to the east of the new offshore permits.

The combined size of the three blocks exceeds7,500 sq. km and they are all situated in a prospective area to the north of the undeveloped offshore Cap Juby oil field and south of the onshore producing oil and gas fields of the Essaouira area.

All three blocks will initially be evaluated by the reprocessing of existing seismic data, interpretation of all available geophysical and geological data and the undertaking of new technical studies. The future work programme for the offshore permits includes the acquisition of new seismic data and the drilling of one well.
