ReconAfrica begins 450 km 2D seismic program in the Kavango Basin

Reconnaissance Energy Africa (ReconAfrica) has commenced the permitting process for the acquisition of 450 kms of 2D seismic data in the deep Kavango Basin in the Kalahari Desert of North East Namibia. To execute the program, the Company has contracted Polaris Natural Resources, based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

As a result of a competitive bidding process, ReconAfrica has contracted Polaris Natural Resources Inc, Canada’s longest standing seismic company to provide acquisition services for its first 2D seismic program. Polaris has conducted over 1,000 seismic projects since 1996 and introduced the first ‘low impact seismic crew’ into Africa in 2008.

This includes the patented Polaris Explorer 860 energy source which represents the world’s most environmentally friendly seismic source. This technology has been used very successfully on over 15 projects in East Africa and has been well accepted in all communities where it has been used. This source will be complimented with the world’s newest and smallest wireless recording nodes or receivers.
