onhym_23.10.2013_300.jpgThe block used to be 100% owned and operated by the Moroccan state oil company ONHYM, under the name "Boujdour onshore".

Now, WSRW has observed that the block has been renamed to "Block 188" and offered as "open acreage" to the industry.

See an old map to the right, with the ONHYM owned "Boujdour" onshore block marked in light blue.

Another change on the block distribution is that the onshore block XI seems to have been cut in half.

WSRW has previously reported on seismic exploration and what appears to be some sort of test drilling on that block, see videos and photos of that "Boujdour onshore" block operations here.

The UN stated in 2002 that any further oil exploration or exploitation in Western Sahara would be in violation of international law  if the people of the territory do not consent to it. They don't.

Entering into business deals with Moroccan companies or authorities in the occupied territories gives an impression of political legitimacy to the occupation. It also gives job opportunities to Moroccan settlers and income to the Moroccan government. Western Sahara Resource Watch demands foreign companies leave Western Sahara until a solution to the conflict is found.
