Hyperdynamics excited about its high risk/high reward programme

Hyperdynamics Corporation (OTCMKTS:HYDN) is an independent exploration company exploring offshore the Republic of Guinea for new sources of oil and Gas and has a 100% share in an ultra-deep water two-well drilling programme.

President and chief executive Ray Leonard tells Proactive: ‘’We’re gearing up to spud the next well in April and we’re really excited about it.’’

‘’In terms of why Guinea right now really there are two things -  first of all northwest Africa was an area that was pretty much an exploration wasteland until 2007 when Tullow Oil made a huge discovery called the Jubilee Field which is about a billion barrels of oil and after that there was a tremendous amount of leasing of other companies and over time the results have pointed in our view to Guinea being the closest analogy in geology to offshore Ghana. The other plus is that this contract was negotiated in 2006 – the year before Jubilee. What you often get in the oil industry is that once someone makes a discovery, not only do the companies rush into the area but the host governments realise that this is something very attractive and the terms start getting more difficult – royalties increase, the profit split to the host nation increases and this is the only contract left that’s pre-Jubilee times so not only do you have excellent geology but you have excellent fiscal terms’’, Leonard adds.
