The award of Block SL-4A-10 is still subject to ratification by the Parliament of the Republic of Sierra Leone.

Key points:

- African Petroleum Sierra Leone Limited’s exploration programme will target deep water Upper Cretaceous submarine fans offshore Sierra Leone, which are considered to have similar high impact potential as discoveries such as Anadarko’s Mercury, Jupiter and Venus discoveries, Sierra Leone.
