Leni starts legal fight with MOG

Explorer Leni Gas and Oil yesterday issued High Court proceedings against fellow explorer Mediterranean Oil and Gas (MOG), regarding last year’s sale of Leni’s 10 per cent stake in a Maltese oil block to the European-focused explorer. Leni alleges that MOG misrepresented the productivity of the oil block, which the latter denies. MOG said yesterday that the allegations are unfounded and it will defend itself “rigorously”.
