In October 2012 Genel Energy announced that it had acquired the rights to two blocks in semi-autonomous Somaliland, Block 13 and Block 10B. The company stated that it planned to conduct seismic work in northwestern Somalia in early 2013 and to drill its first well in the second quarter of 2013, with another coming in 2015.

Spokesman Andrew Benbow told Reuters that: "Somaliland provides an exciting geological opportunity, and we look forward to starting work in the region."
