Commenting on the progress of the Mzarabani project, Invictus Managing Director Scott Macmillan said the seismic program will pave way for progress in the Mzarabani-1 target.
“The seismic program will enable us to refine the Mzarabani-1 target defined from the existing seismic dataset and help us fill our prospect inventory ahead of our basin opening drilling campaign. We are very excited to get our exploration program underway.”
Furthermore, Invictus said that Polaris Natural Resources will implement an 85% local content policy on all of its activities regarding employment, supplies, and consumables.
“In keeping with the Company’s strong commitment to community employment, Polaris’s corporate goals are to implement an 85% local content policy on all of its operations regarding employment, supplies, and consumables. The campaign will involve the training and deployment of approximately 80 local field crew for the seismic acquisition program.”
Polaris Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Bill Mooney said the company is pleased to work with Invictus on the Mzarabani project,
“Polaris is very pleased to support Invictus on this world-class project. The combination of technologies being employed represent not only the lightest seismic footprint possible, but also allows for very fast and high-resolution data acquisition,” said Mr. Mooney.
The Company will be joined by Barry Meikle as Seismic Project Manage who has extensive experience in onshore seismic acquisition projects in PNG with Total and Interoil, and project management expertise with oil field service companies in East Africa.
Polaris will begin mobilising the seismic equipment and personnel to Harare in the coming weeks to undergo preparation for the acquisition before deploying to the field.
Polaris has conducted over 1,000 seismic projects since 1996 and introduced the first ‘low impact seismic crew’ into Africa in 2008. Polaris has conducted over 15 projects in East Africa and has been well accepted in all communities where they have operated. Polaris will also deploy the world’s newest and smallest wireless recording nodes and receivers.
