Guyana resumes seismic surveys in Venezuela's Atlantic front
Guyana's Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment announced that surveys will be conducted through March 2013
In an official statement, Guyana's Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment informed that the aforementioned companies outsourced CGG Veritas "to conduct a 3D-seismic survey offshore Guyana."
The survey was originally slated for January 20 and will be completed by mid March 2013.
The only license Guyana has granted to Shell and Esso is the so-called Stabroek block, which affects the maritime projection of Venezuela's Atlantic front, including the maritime projection of Delta Amacuro state and that of the Essequibo territory, a disputed area.
