Tower Resources plc, the AIM listed oil and gas company with its focus on Africa, is pleased to announce that to coincide with the Company's participation at the Africa Oil Week Conference ("AOW") held in Cape Town, South Africa, a copy of the presentation given at the AOW Prospect Forum will be available from today on the Company's website at www.towerresources.co.uk. The slides will be in the Presentations section of the site and a version of the slides with a voice-over from Duncan Rushworth will be in the Multi-media section of the site.
The presentation summarises the findings of extensive basin modelling studies and integrates the results of the oil seep analysis recently conducted by the Company on the PEL96 license, offshore Namibia. The results of the studies were very promising, with the presence of Direct Hydrocarbon Indicators observable on legacy seismic data and surface oil seeps identified from satellite data. Both are indicative of a working petroleum system in the vicinity of PEL96, and the fact that the oil seep study, conducted after the basin modelling was complete, appears very consistent with the modelled charge and migration paths, is encouraging. The basin modelling studies have demonstrated the potential presence of a source rock that has reached sufficient maturity to expel material volumes of hydrocarbons. The studies also showed viable migration routes can be established that provide hydrocarbon charge to prospects previously mapped on PEL96, as well as additional possible leads which are currently being analysed.
