The two contracts are for blocks numbered 22/15 and 16/05, both in the South China Sea.

CNOOC and Newfield had signed a geophysical survey agreement on this block in 2005, under which Newfield committed to exploration drilling. Under the contracts, all costs incurred during the exploration will be borne by Newfield. Source: Xinhua
