Monrovia, Liberia |  – American multinational energy giant Exxon Mobil Corporation  will start drilling its first exploratory well off the coast of Liberia in November, the world’s largest publicly-traded oil company said on Tuesday.

“ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Liberia Limited, an affiliate of ExxonMobil, plans to drill a deepwater exploration well on the Liberia-13 Block, located about 50 miles offshore Liberia, beginning in November 2016,” a spokeswoman said.

This long-awaited wildcat offshore Liberia was canned more than two years ago over the Ebola virus outbreak in Liberia and other parts of West Africa.
