Lekoil Shops For $100m To Drill Ogo Oilfield

Nigerian based energy firm, Lekoil Ltd, is shopping for about $100 million to enable it commence the drilling of its Ogo oilfield.

Reuters said in a report yesterday that the company reached a deferred payment deal earlier this year to keep its stake in OML 310, where Ogo is located, after it discovered a $184 million loan it wanted to use for the purchase was fraudulent.
