Nabirm is the holder of a Namibian Petroleum Exploration Licence 0058, held over Block 2113A. The license overlaps the under explored, distal offshore Walvis Basin and the proximal onshore Huab Basins, south of the Walvis Ridge in South West Africa. The License is held jointly by Nabirm  (90%) and the National Petroleum Corporation of Namibia (Pty) Ltd (NAMCOR) (10%) In addition to the License, Nabirm and NAMCOR are parties to a Petroleum Agreement dated 8 May  2012 between them and the Government of the Republic of Namibia  through its Ministry of Mines & Energy.

Oilfield will work with Nabirm in making an assessment of the Geological Chance Of Success (“GCOS”) from the classical parameters (Structure/Trap; Seal, Reservoir; hydrocarbon charge; and Timing of hydrocarbon migration) using the available geological tools and data. This “Initial GCOS (“I-GCOS”) will be based on studies of: the depositional environment, Time-structure and Depth-converted maps (supported by seismic data and wells), geochemical studies of rocks, as well as properly balancing available well information.
