Islamic Republic of Mauritania Current Activities

26 26 The hydrocarbon potential of Mauritania remains under explored, Oil & gas source rocks, reservoirs, seals are present in both basins, Sedimentary basins thickness is up to 9 km and the limited available data show the presence of interesting prospects, Strong will to set up political and social stability with good governance as well as offering advantageous PSC & Fiscal terms are meant to welcome interested investors.
