New survey lines fall within licensing blocks 1, 3, 5, and 6 of the first Lebanese offshore licensing round as announced by the Lebanese government in the official round opening on April 30.
Acquisition is under way and is scheduled to finish early June with a fasttrack product available by mid July 2013. The final processed product will be available by the end of August.
