Boston, MA -- (SBWire) -- 09/17/2012 --In 2013, Angola is planning to auction oil exploration rights to the onshore Kwanza basin following positive results from pre-salt offshore exploration activities. These comprises the discovery of an offshore oil reservoir by Cobalt International Energy, Inc. in block 21 of the offshore Kwanza basin in February 2012 and the discovery of oil by Maersk Oil in block 23 of the offshore Kwanza basin in January 2012. The Cobalt International Energy, Inc. discovery has also confirmed geological similarities between Brazil's offshore Campos basin (which has witnessed several pre-salt oil and gas discoveries in the past few years) and Angola's offshore Kwanza basin. Angola is confident that the bidding will attract a high level of interest from international Exploration and Production (E&P) companies.
