Hydrocarb Energy Corporation Releases Geologic Field Study Report
Independent Lab Confirms Crude Oil in Namibian Soil Sample
HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Results from Hydrocarb Energy Corporation's recent geologic field survey in the Owambo Basin confirm the presence of crude oil from a probable carbonate source according to a study performed by Weatherford Laboratories of Houston, TX.
The independent analysis was performed on a soil sample from the vicinity of the Etosha Petroleum 5-1A well bore, the only well in the entire Owambo Basin to penetrate the top of the prospective carbonate section.
Jeremy Driver, Chief Executive of Duma Energy (OTCBB:DUMA), stated, "We're very encouraged by the results of the Weatherford report. Carbonate basins of a similar age, which are found in North Africa, Siberia, and Oman, are known for prolific oil production." Duma Energy is a 39% working interest partner in Hydrocarb Energy Corporation's onshore Owambo Basin concession.
Pasquale Scaturro, Hydrocarb's President commented, "This positive news confirms our belief that a petroleum system is present in northern Namibia and that the Owambo Basin has the potential to develop into a major petroleum province."
Hydrocarb expects to release the full soil sample report along with the results of the recently completed geologic field study shortly, and are currently launching a source rock study in the 5.3 million acre Owambo Basin concession. It will be followed by an airborne high-resolution gravity and magnetics survey.
