CNOOC to get Dreki license by year’s end: NYT

Posted on Tumblr on Oct 2.

The NYT quotes Þórarinn Arnarson from the Icelandic National Energy Authority (NEA) as expecting CNOOC and Eykon Energy’s application to drill in the Dreki area to be approved “by the end of the year”. Not two months ago, Vísir‘s sources thought it likely for the approval to come in October. The Dreki area is under continental waters between Iceland and the Norwegian island of Jan Mayen. I’ve written about the project, a first for both Iceland and CNOOC.
