About the Project
ReconAfrica is a Canadian-based oil and gas company working collaboratively with national governments to explore oil and gas potential in Northeast Namibia and Northwest Botswana – the Kavango Basin.
To date, ReconAfrica has been granted license by Namibia to explore and confirm the presence of their resources; we have no license to produce oil or to engage in hydraulic fracturing (‘fracing’).
This project aims to prove a potential reserve that could lead to economic stimulus, funding local and regional jobs and other socio-economic benefits such as increased infrastructure, potable water access and investments in environmental and wildlife conservation.
Should oil and gas be discovered, Namibia’s traditional authorities and its elected governments will determine how it will manage those resources.
