Announcing its Q3 2016 results, Erin Energy said it was still seeking farm-in partners for Kenya ultra-deep water offshore blocks, L-27 and L-28.

In Kenya, the Company has completed the interpretation of 2D seismic data acquired on its onshore blocks L1B and L16, and identified a number of potential leads to pursue. Erin Energy continues to mature these leads and is currently designing additional targeted 2D seismic to be acquired in 2017 on the two onshore blocks to provide a better understanding of the identified leads.

While examining ways to rationalize its exploration assets in Kenya, and focus on the most prospective of the Kenyan assets, Erin Energy said it has intensified efforts to identify farm-in partners in order to share exploration costs and risks in the ultra-deep water offshore blocks, L-27 and L-28.

In September 2015, Erin Energy announced that it had obtained an eighteen-month extension of the Initial Exploration Period (IEP) of its offshore Kenya Blocks, L27 and L28. The IEP on blocks L27 and L28 was extended to February 2017.
