ReconAfrica gets okay for Namibian seismic programme
Canada’s Reconnaissance Energy Africa (ReconAfrica) has received the environmental clearance from the Namibian government to shoot a 2D seismic survey in the country's Kavango East and West regions, it said on July 7.
ReconAfrica and Namibian national oil company Namcor plan to start on the 450-km survey in the third week of July and the work should take six to eight weeks. ReconAfrica has contracted Canada’s Polaris Natural Resources for the programme.
ReconAfrica is a junior oil and gas company engaged in the development of the newly discovered Kavango basin, in northeast Namibia, where it holds a 90% working interest in a 25,500-km2 petroleum licence. It recently started drilling the first of three planned wells at the site.
