Oil exploration license for Chinese firm expected ‘soon’

An oil exploration license is expected to be signed “soon” with a Chinese company for the exploration of Block D in the Gulf of Thailand, a government spokesman said on Thursday. Block D is a 5,500-square-kilometer concession formerly licensed to Cambodian firm CPHL. The previous license was revoked in 2016, reportedly due to failure to meet the terms of the agreement.
