Africa Energy with operating 30.9% shareholding interest in Impact Oil & Gas has exposure to the Venus-1 exploration well in Block 2913B, offshore Namibia which is expected to spud by the end 2021. Venus-1 will target a large basin floor fan system with significant undiscovered petroleum initially in place that has been identified using 3D seismic data.

Africa Oil has interests in Block 11B/12B and Block 2B, offshore South Africa through its shareholding in Africa Energy Corp. (“Africa Energy”) and Impact.

In 2020, Africa Energy announced the successful drilling and testing results of its second consecutive discovery on Block 11B/12B. The discovery on the Luiperd Prospect reconfirms the Paddavissie Fairway as a world-class exploration play with substantial follow-on potential. Due to the success at Luiperd, the joint venture decided to proceed with development studies and engage with authorities on gas commercialization. Africa Energy management believe the fundamentals are strong for a gas condensate development on Block 11B/12B, as South Africa is a large energy market looking to transition from coal to natural gas and is currently limited to expensive imports.

The Block 2B joint venture partners are focused on procuring a rig for the Gazania-1 oil exploration well offshore South Africa in order to spud in the third quarter of 2021. Block 2B has significant contingent and prospective resources in shallow water close to shore and includes the A-J1 discovery from 1988 that flowed light sweet crude oil to surface. Gazania-1 will target two prospects in a relatively low-risk rift basin oil play up-dip from the discovery. In Kenya, the JV partners are designing a field development plan for the South Lokichar development in collaboration with the government of Kenya in order to optimize the economics of the project, enhance its sustainability performance and secure a long term extension of the licenses, while minimizing expenditures in the short term.
