ReconAfrica Starts Seismic Programme in Namibia
Toronto-listed Reconnaissance Energy Africa (ReconAfrica) has started the acquisition of 450-km of 2D seismic data in the Kavango basin in Namibia’s Kalahari Desert, it said on January 18.
“The Kavango basin is a large sedimentary basin comprised of five sub-basins and numerous structural features,” said CEO Scot Evans. “The initial seismic programme will provide the basis for evaluation and ultimately drilling of this very large set of conventional oil and gas prospects.”
The company has contracted Canada’s Polaris Natural Resources to provide acquisition services for its first 2D seismic programme. The company last week started drilling the first of three planned wells in the Kavango basin.
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.
