Liberia sees Venus spud soon

LIBERIA EXPECTS ANADARKO Petroleum to drill its first well at the Venus offshore site in December, according to the country's energy minister.

A consortium led by Anadarko announced last September that it had made a find off the coast of Sierra Leone that analysts said potentially opened up a multibillion-barrel oil frontier in West Africa. Partners include Tullow Oil.

"We are looking forward to December to have the first well drilled in Venus basin by Anadarko," Eugene Shannon said an African energy conference.
