invites investors
to join us in exploring
this emerging basin

There has been significant speculation for sometime as to the prospectively of various massive geological basins in Namibia but until now focused mainly offshore.

MEL is fortunate to control a large and highly prospective onshore area in North Namibia, where there is building evidence of a large and very commercial oil and gas opportunity.

Our neighbour ReconAfrica’s announcements strongly support MEL’s exploration strategy as they have proven a working petroleum system and good quality reservoir in the Owambo basin.  

MEL is looking for a funding partner to support a $25mln seismic and two well drilling programme in 2022-2023 in exchange for a substantial share of the prize that is potentially available. 

The MEL principles are open minded as to the structure that incoming investors may prefer to pursue, including:

✔ Conventional Farm-in arrangement, in exchange for a share of the local license interest 

Investment into MEL to support the company in executing the next stage of the exploration and appraisal

Acquisition of or a merger with MEL where the partner company is able to bring human resources to the situation complimentary to that which MEL itself would look to deploy
