The Licenses cover water depths ranging from the shoreline to 1,800m and are covered by over 10,000 line kilometers of good quality 2D seismic data. Westbridge's initial technical analysis indicates the Licenses show similar geologic play concepts and trends to those observed in other prolific petroleum basins in Brazil and the deepwaters of Ghana, Angola, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Cody Lee, CEO of Westbridge, commented, "These new Licenses represent a highly complementary geologic extension of Westbridge's existing asset base and hold world-class discovery potential. The acquisition of these highly prospective Licenses validates our selection of the contiguous position of Block 1811B where we have an 80% working interest. Furthermore, this Transaction demonstrates Westbridge's ability to leverage our strong local partnerships to acquire world-class assets."
Westbridge reserves the right to pay a finders fee in cash and/or securities of Westbridge to arm's length finders in connection with the Transaction. The Transaction is an arm's length transaction and is not expected to result in a change of control of Westbridge.
