Gabriel Mbaga Obiang Lima, the Minister of Mines and Hydrocarbons of Equatorial Guinea at Africa Oil & Power, one year after the Ronda was initially launched. Out of a total of 23 companies expressing interest in the licensing round since the EG Ronda opened in June 2016 at the inaugural Africa Oil & Power event, 12 companies submitted official bids for the EG Ronda. Of those, just seven companies have advanced to negotiations, which are set to begin June 19, 2017. “Some of the companies are majors, some are minors, but the important thing is that they are companies dedicated and willing to do exploration and that is the thing that needs to be done,” said H.E. Gabriel Mbaga Obiang Lima at the conference.
