As the Operator of the Guy Block, we remain committed to high quality data and have once again utilised world class technical analysis, provided with the PGS GeoStreamer system, which will enable us to identify and prove our block targets. We are delighted to continue working with our partners, Eco (Atlantic) Oil & Gas and Namcor, and make further progress in our exploration programme for 2016.
AziNam currently has interests in a total of 6 licences, offshore Namibia, with low cost exposure to this under-explored oil and gas province which has attracted a great deal of industry attention from a number of major international oil companies including Shell, Tullow, OMV and Murphy Oil.“

Namibia is an under-explored oil and gas province with high potential which is gaining increasing industry attention from a number of major oil companies.
A combination of heightened industry interest in the country coupled with recent licensing and exploration success in geologically analogous regions within the South Atlantic margins, including the Falkland Islands, Brazil, South Africa and Angola, has made the region one of the most attractive potential hydrocarbon provinces in the global arena.
Seacrest Capital Group is a leading energy investor specialising in the upstream segment of the oil and gas industry, leveraging its proprietary assets and relationships to build a diversified, global portfolio of regionally focussed oil and gas exploration companies. Since 2011, Seacrest Capital Group has invested in a number of successful new exploration companies in the United Kingdom, Norway, West Africa, Ireland, South East Asia and South America. As a result of Seacrest’s strong and long-term support, AziNam is ideally positioned to take advantage of and build on further opportunities as they arise in the offshore Namibia regions.
