I asked Hassan why they were waiting till January for 2d & 3d seismic and why cant they start straight away.

Hassan replied that if a major was to come in and they expect one by January then they will want to shoot their own 2d 3d as he expects them to be drilling. In his own words it would be doing the same work twice and secondly he said that the seismic company were not available till Jamuary anyway so they can afford to wait.

I also know that since the data room has opened things are progressing very well with the farm out process.
