CAMAC Signs Airborne Gravity & Magnetic Contract with SGL

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/25/2013, Location: Africa

CAMAC Energy Inc. announced it has signed an agreement with Sander Geophysics Limited (SGL) to shoot airborne gravity and magnetic geophysical surveys on its Kenya onshore Lamu Basin Blocks L1B and L16. The data acquisition will cover the entire 12,197 square kilometers in Block L1B and the entire 3,613 square kilometers in Block L16, exceeding the first exploration period's gravity and magnetic survey requirements for each Block.

The results of the airborne gravity and magnetic survey will be used to optimize the placement of 2-D seismic lines by identifying faults, basement structures and intra-sedimentary volcanic layers and/or intrusions. Airborne gravity and magnetic data combined with 2-D seismic has been utilized to identify successful exploration targets in East African Rift Basins by regional operators Heritage, Tullow and Africa Oil. The Company expects SGL to commence data acquisition in the second quarter of 2013 and provide initial results in the third quarter of 2013.

Founded in 1956, the Ottawa-based SGL provides worldwide airborne geophysical surveys for petroleum and mineral exploration, and geological and environmental mapping. SGL has operated on every continent including Antarctica, and under diverse conditions ranging from the tropics, deserts, mountains and offshore.

"Executing this agreement with SGL is an important milestone for our Kenya exploration program," said Senior Vice President of Exploration and Production Segun Omidele. "These gravity and magnetic surveys will satisfy the first requirement of the first exploration period, and most importantly, will allow us to delineate an optimal 2-D seismic program on the Blocks. This is the first step to unlocking the high potential value of our onshore Kenya acreage."
