Reconnaissance Energy Africa has announced it has received its environmental clearance certificate (ECC) from the office of the Environmental Commissioner, Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism, covering PEL 73 licence, which extends over an area of 6.3 million acres (25 000 km2), in north-eastern Namibia.

The ECC has authorised ReconAfrica to commence the drilling of an additional 12 exploration and appraisal wells, to unrestricted depths, in the Kavango Basin, in Namibia from July 4, 2023, until July 4, 2026. The primary objective of the upcoming drilling program is to establish commercial accumulations of oil and or natural gas and natural gas liquids which were identified in the first three stratigraphic test wells. The current focus in the 3rd & 4th quarter of 2023 is developing and prioritising its prospect inventory in order to execute a multi-well drilling programme targeting both primary plays; the Damara Fold Belt and the Karoo Rift Basin, with initial emphasis on the Damara Fold Belt.
