Mauritius-based Safari and Western Energy formed the other of two consortia to share the six offshore blocks awarded, Reuters reported Comoros Energy Minister Abdou Nassur as saying on Wednesday.

Upstream reported late last year that Bahari and Discover had been beaten to blocks D, E and F but were jointly chasing other acreage.

Discover already operates blocks A, B and C.
