Simba Energy Inc. ("Simba" or the "Company") (TSXV: SMB, Frankfurt: GDA, OTCQX: SMBZF), the pan-African oil & gas explorer, with approval of the OGRPP (de l’Office Guineen de Recherche et de Promotion Petrolieres) has completed an educational lecture and field trip in the Republic of Guinea.
Simba Energy’s James W. Dick, Chief Technical Officer & Director, conducted an educational lecture that combined boardroom presentation and a field trip to visit the Company’s concession. The lecture held at the OGRPP (de l’Office Guineen de Recherche et de Promotion Petrolieres) was attended by over 30 geologic and technical staff.
The field trip to Simba’s Block 2 identified and sampled numerous oil seeps and a contaminated (unpalatable) water well. Many samples were taken for laboratory analysis to confirm the presence of hydrocarbon. Preliminary tests on two samples showed significant florescence confirming the presence of hydrocarbon.
The Company has also opened an office in Conakry, complete with locally hired support staff and a Country Manager.
Simba Energy’s James Dick remarked, “...with this trip we firmly established Simba’s presence on the ground in Guinea. We are very pleased with the magnitude and number of seeps found, with hydrocarbon odor present at some of these locations. The Company is pleased with its progress to date and will continue with its activities to prepare for further appraisal work.”
The Company holds a 60% operating interest in the PSC (Production Sharing Contract) for onshore Blocks 1 & 2, comprising 12,000 square kilometres in the Bove Basin. The Company’s upcoming appraisal and planned seismic work as part of the PSC is supported by the following (historical) highlights and rationale:
