Hunter-

 

I hope you are well.  A colleague of mine rec= ently approached us about an opportunity for U.S. oil and gas exploration f= irms to bid oil concessions (both onshore and offshore) in the Ivory Coast.  I met with the Prime Minister a number of months ag= o and at the time he told me that Ivory Coast was very interested in gettin= g more U.S. investment in the country and this is one of the opportunities = he had mentioned to me as well.  =

 

I thought you might know of some U.S. firms that m= ight be interested in this opportunity and if so, perhaps we could jointly = work with them to help them in the process.  I am attaching a document which details the blocks available.  

 

I am also copying my partner, Eric Schwerin, who I= think you recall from working with us when you were on the Hill, as he may= be able to help with any follow up questions you might have.

 

Let me know if you have any thoughts/questions.

 

Also, do you know the guys from Pytrole Energy?

 

Best, 

Hunter
