Cynthia Lumor noted that, they are keen to explore additional exploration opportunities and given its experience operating in Ghana for more than a decade.

She stated that, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea’s (ITLOS) ruling on Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire territorial waters last year has boosted their confidence to focus on the full development of the Jubilee Field.
