Manas Adriatic GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Petromanas Energy Inc., has signed two agreements for Land Seismic Services with the Italian company Geotec S.p.A, on May 27, 2010, one each for Blocks D?E and Blocks 2?3 which are onshore Production Sharing Contracts in Albania.Geotec S.p.A. has extensive experience in the hydrocarbon exploration industry performing seismic work in Albania in conjunction with international oil and gas companies for many years.

The majority of the seismic work will be carried out with heliportable rigs and the remainder through conventional shallow drilling rigs.
