Noble Energy Considering More Stakes in West Africa Operations

April 22 (Bloomberg) -- Noble Energy Inc., an exploration and production company, is looking for more opportunities in West Africa, Global New Ventures Manager Ian Gordon said.

The Houston-based company would consider a stake in the region for the right price, Gordon said in an interview in Namibia’s capital, Windhoek.

Noble first made investments in West Africa in the 1990s and began output with the Alba field offshore Equatorial Guinea, according to the company’s website. It expects production from the Alen field, southeast of Alba, late this year.
