More oil finds expected off coast of Africa

ANADARKO PETROLEUM CORP, the US natural gas producer with a share in Ghana's Jubilee project, expects to make more finds off Africa's coast.

"We have Ghana, which is going to be an established producing area," said Frank Patterson, vice president of international exploration. Mr Patterson also mentioned Sierra Leone, Liberia, Mozambique and Kenya as possible areas for finds.

Anadarko made a gas discovery in February off the coast of Mozambique and in September discovered crude off the coast of Sierra Leone. The company will collect seismic data on two blocks offshore Cote d'Ivoire this year.
