  • Pura Vida Energy Completes Farm-Out Of Morocco Offshore Oil Permit To Freeport-McMoRan 0 comments
    Oct 31, 2013 11:08 PM

    Pura Vida Energy (ASX: PVD) has completed the farm-out of its Mazagan permit, offshore Morocco, to a subsidiary of Freeport-McMoRan Oil & Gas (NYSE: FCX) in return for US$15 million in cash and a free carry on two exploration wells.

    It is also entering East Africa with a farm-in to 50% of the Ambilobe Production Sharing Contract (PSC) offshore Madagascar.

    The farm-out to Freeport-McMoRan is a key milestone as it allows drilling to begin on the Mazagan permit with the first well targeting the 1.5 billion barrel Toubkal prospect.

    The company will retain a 23% stake in the permit.

    Pura Vida is also taking up a 50% stake in Ambilobe under an agreement with Sterling Energy (AIM: SEY) by reimbursing US$1.25 million back costs and funding the acquisition and processing of 1,000 kilometres of 2D and 1,250 square kilometres of 3D seismic data to a maximum cost of US$15 million.

    Ambilobe has a number of plays relating to salt with potential for large scale oil discoveries.
