Cirrus will operate the M1a production license for 15 years, with the state-owned EN farming in with 50%. Engineering design for the M1-A field development is already under way, and formal project approval is expected shortly.

The company has also been awarded 100% of the Q10 exploration license, for a period of four years. The Q10 block covers 422 sq km (262 sq mi), in water depths of 19-25 m (62-82 ft).

It contains several prospective Triassic structural leads mapped on 3D seismic. Cirrus expects to work initially on reprocessing this data and remapping the area, which is contiguous to the company’s Q11 and Q14 exploration licenses.
