An oil rig platform has been setup within Barbadian waters on the west coast in what can be described as the "Holetown" block just days after a report by BGIS media which reported that Government will soon be awarding offshore drilling licences to BHP Billiton for the offshore blocks.
The report had said that BHP Billiton would have been awarded the Carlisle Bay and Bimshire blocks of the 26 available, but the rig appears to be in the "Holetown" exploration block. Has government changed its mind, or has someone else been awarded another contract?
