A Look into Blocks 22/22a, 22b and 22c
1 March 2001

Block 22/22 was originally awarded in the First Round in 1964 with Amoco as Operator. The block remained undrilled before partial relinquishment in 1970. Block 22/22b was re-awarded in the Fourth Round 1972. This part-block also was not drilled before partial relinquishment, and part-block 22/22c was awarded in the Twelfth Round in 1991. Block 22/22c was subsequently split into 22/22c Upper (Upper Cretaceous and above) and 22/22c Lower (Lower Cretaceous and deeper).
