The Liberia Petroleum Regulatory Authority (LPRA) has announced that its licensing round launch event on 15 April will now be conducted via a webinar to prevent the spread of Covid-19. The round is expected to offer nine blocks numbered LB-25 to LB-33 in the Harper Basin and will be governed by the revised petroleum law passed last year. LPRA said the launch would be a small ceremony attended by delegates from Liberia only, with a speech from President George Weah, a technical presentation on the geology and prospects of the Harper Basin, and a presentation on the regulatory framework.
