This company made successful discovery but could not progress to 
field development because of the ITLOS’s preliminary injunction. 
The company can now go ahead to submit Plan of development.
Aker acquired the interest of Hess in the block and proceeded to 
complete appraisals studies. Programme of Development (PoD) was 
submitted to government. The PoD was not  approved. 
Aker has to revise and resubmit the PoD.
2020 Update

Aker awaited some amendments to its PA to finalize the Pecan PoD and resubmit. Parliament amended the DWTCTP PA in 
December 2020. However, Aker suspended the development of thefield in April 2020 due to low oil prices and the COVID-19 
pandemic.
