Kosmos and Cairn Energy are exploring for oil offshore Western Sahara, occupied by Morocco. This photo taken yesterday shows one of their supply vessels.
The images of the vessel Geo Service 1 (IMO 9621546) were shot in the harbour of Dakhla yesterday, 27 March 2017.
The vessel is one of three supply vessels that are assisting the survey ship BGP Prospector in the seismic study programme that Kosmos Energy and Cairn Energy are undertaking offshore the occupied territory. WSRW wrote on 23 March 2017 about those studies.
Kosmos Energy's supply vessel Geo Service 1 was observed yesterday in occupied Western Sahara.
At the Spanish government owned harbour of Las Palmas today, Geo Service 1 is bunkering supplies for the illegal Moroccan oil studies offshore occupied Western Sahara. The studies take place not too far away from Spanish waters.
17 years of US private company engagement in exploring the oil potential of Western Sahara has come to an end.
Over the past 24 hours, WSRW has observed a resumed seabed exploration north of Dakhla, in the block operated by American oil company Kosmos Energy in collaboration with Scotland's Cairn Energy.
