Barrow says Blocks Claimed by African Petroleum Open for Bids

African Petroleum’s rights to explore in two offshore Gambian oil blocks have expired and are currently “open for licensing”, presidential spokeswoman Amie Bojang said on Monday.

The Oslo-listed firm’s CEO met with President Adama Barrow last month after oil officials in the West African nation said exploration rights for the promising A1 and A4 licences would not be renewed.
