The first exploration period now ends on 8 November 2017, the company added.

DNO International is the operator of the 12,000 sq km onshore block with 50 per cent interest.

Partners DNO International and Petrogas, holding 40 per cent, have completed the field survey and environmental assessment studies over the block and will initiate a planned seismic acquisition programme once the Somaliland government has put in place a planned oil protection unit (OPU) to support the international oil companies operating in the country, which is expected to be operational in 2015.
