Swala Energy awarded Block 44 in Zambia

Swala Energy Ltd.

East Africa-focused Swala Energy Ltd. reports that its 93%-owned subsidiary, Swala Energy (Zambia) Ltd., has been formally awarded hydrocarbon exploration rights over Block 44 in the Republic of Zambia. The award of Block 44 has now been granted following ministerial consent from the Ministry of Energy in Zambia.

Block 44 lies in the southern part of the country and covers an area of 2,316 square miles (6,000 square kilometers) on the margins of the Karoo-aged Kariba Basin. During the first contract year, Swala intends to reprocess and reinterpret the legacy seismic data as part of its work program. Under the provisions of the award, Swala may withdraw after each of the first two years of the contract should the work conducted not confirm the basin’s prospectivity.
