The notice of arbitration relates to an alleged dispute concerning payment of approximately US$9.3 million for the seismic data acquired by TGS. EP(UK) has been named as a co- Respondent in the arbitration together with Prontinal Limited, EP(UK)’s former joint venturepartner in the Block SL-4 joint venture.
