Australian player Armour Energy has suspended its 2D seismic programme on the Kanyawataba block in Uganda after the area was affected by adverse weather conditions, writes Barry Morgan.

The Brisbane-based company cited force majeure resulting from stormy weather conditions and flooding for the halt at the tract on the southern shores of Lake Albert, west of the Semliki river.

The work had constituted the minimum work programme under the terms of the production sharing agreement. The survey of the area, which is located east of Heritage Oil’s early and carbon dioxide rich Turaco discovery, was originally scheduled to finish by 13 September.
