BG Group announced today that it has signed Production Sharing Contracts with the Government of Kenya for two offshore exploration blocks - L10A and L10B.

BG Group will be operator on both blocks and will hold a 40% equity interest in block L10A and a 45% interest in block L10B. The initial work programme consists of a commitment to acquire seismic data during an initial exploration period of two years.

Blocks L10A and L10B together cover an area of more than 10,400 square kilometres in the southern portion of the Lamu Basin, offshore Kenya, located in water depths ranging from around 200 metres to in excess of 1 900 metres.

BG Group Executive Vice President and Managing Director, Africa Middle East & Asia, Sami Iskander, said: "BG Group looks forward to working with our partners and the Kenyan Government to play an active role in the exploration for oil and gas offshore Kenya."
