The firm, who operates the licences on behalf of Australian joint venture partner Otto Energy, said the contract included 300km of 2D seismic in Kilosa-Kilombero and 200km in Pangani.

The Kilosa, Kilombero and Kidatu basins, each covering about 2,000 sq km, were identified in Kiloso-Kilombero licence. Two further basins were identified in the Pangani licence.

The project is expected to be conducted from June to September this year.

Davis Mestres Ridge, chief executive of Swala Oil & Gas, said, “The programme would enable the company to gain a better overall understanding of the basins such that specific areas of interest can be targeted for infill seismic and drilling.”

Airborne gravity-magnetic surveys conducted in 2012 had confirmed the likely presence of significant sedimentary basins in both licence areas.
