Consultancy Firm Tables New Details on Kenya-Somali Oil Row

Norwegian consultancy firm, Spectrum Geo, has said it had been contracted to gather seismic data only in Somali territory, avoiding the regions contested by Kenya. The company was referring to Kenya's claim that Somalia had "auctioned" oil blocks belonging to Nairobi, during an oil conference on February 7 in London.
