ReconAfrica denies frack plans for Namibia

Reconnaissance Africa has defended its drilling plans in northern Namibia, denying that it will carry out operations in environmentally sensitive areas.

“There’s a lot of confusion around what we’re doing. This is opening a new sedimentary basin where there are no wells. We have to prove an active petroleum system,” ReconAfrica’s CEO Craig Steinke told Energy Voice.

“We have to drill through the entire system, through the conventional formations and into the source rock. At the same time as we’re drilling we’re going to be shooting seismic in order to delineate conventional traps,” he continued. ReconAfrica is seeking 400 km of 2D vibroseis seismic on the area.
