...third party report already estimating over a billion barrels of un-risked resource potential out of a single identified structure
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
MissionIR would like to highlight Duma Energy Corp. (OTCBB: DUMA), an aggressive growth company actively producing oil and gas in the continental United States, both on and offshore. Duma Energy plans to continue increasing revenue, cash flow, and reserves to fund its aggressive growth through acquisition and participation in projects with the potential of providing exponential returns for shareholders.
In the company’s news yesterday,
Hydrocarb Energy just announced the completion of a farm-out agreement to Duma Energy. Houston-based Duma, with current production in the Gulf Coast, indirectly owns a 39% working interest in Owambo blocks 1714A, 1715, 1814A, and 1815A in northern Namibia.
“Our vast and underexplored concession shows tremendous potential based on the data available to date,” stated Kent Watts, Hydrocarb’s Chief Executive. “We have reviewed a third party report already estimating over a billion barrels of un-risked resource potential out of a single identified structure. The Duma partnership allows us to move aggressively towards our ultimate goal, to make a major discovery in Namibia. We anticipate building on new technical findings as the exploration process unfolds.”
Encompassing over 5 million acres, the concession is about the size of Massachusetts. Northern Namibia has all of the key elements needed to become a major oil province, including good reservoir and source rocks. Hydrocarb, as 51% owner, retains its role as operator on all blocks. The new partnership includes NAMCOR, the Namibian National Oil Company, as a 10% partner and Duma at 39%. The commercial terms for the Owambo Petroleum Contract are highly favorable with reasonable onshore operating and exploration costs. According to the release, Namibia is one of the most stable countries in Africa.
Even though its extensive resources are well known, Africa remains greatly under-explored. Recent discoveries of large oil and gas reserves by companies such as Kosmos and Tullow PLC suggest oil and gas production in Africa may be on the verge of dramatic growth. Major and independent players such as Chevron (NYSE: CVX) and Hyperdynamics (NYSE: HDY) retain huge acreage positions and are budgeting billions of dollars for exploration.
Duma Energy Corp.’s Chief Executive, Jeremy Driver, commented, “Our concession is in the Namibian portion of the Owambo Basin which extends into southern Angola and is one of the largest unexplored onshore basins in Africa. This partnership with Hydrocarb fits our core strategy to continuously develop profitable production domestically while also participating in high impact opportunities internationally that have world class potential.”
