“We have successfully completed the geophysical survey of the block”, says K B Trivedi, SFF’s

It was done by the South Sudan Geophysical Company, SSGC, which is a matter of pride for South Sudan, and a matter of pride for us as a partner of the country.”

Mr. Trivedi is widely respected in the geoscience community. A Certified Petroleum Geoscientist , he is currently President, Africa Region at the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG).

SFF plans to undertake an environmental impact assessment of the block over the next six months. That process commenced with a site visit begins in Bor, capital of Jonglei State.
