Guyana resumes seismic surveys in Venezuela's Atlantic front
Guyana's Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment announced that surveys will be conducted through March 2013
In an official statement, Guyana's Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment informed that the aforementioned companies outsourced CGG Veritas "to conduct a 3D-seismic survey offshore Guyana."
The survey was originally slated for January 20 and will be completed by mid March 2013.
The only license Guyana has granted to Shell and Esso is the so-called Stabroek block, which affects the maritime projection of Venezuela's Atlantic front, including the maritime projection of Delta Amacuro state and that of the Essequibo territory, a disputed area.

Cristian Fonseca, a businessman in La Candelaria district downtown Caracas, was doing the accounts in his small shop office on Sunday December 21, 2008. The Christmas shopping season kept him working late hours into the night. It was around 11 p.m. and his phone rang. A friend broke the bad news to him over the telephone.
