Data & Technical Information

NAMCOR is the custodian of all the Namibian Exploration and Production data; therefore, it is NAMCOR’s responsibility to provide this data to potential investors. In addition, NAMCOR has set up a core and drill cuttings storage facility in which the rock samples retrieved during petroleum exploration in this country from 1960 to date are stored for use by those carrying out exploration activities. This data includes all seismic data, well data, engineering well reports, other exploration reports, and aeromagnetic as well as gravity data which has been acquired in this country to date through petroleum exploration activities both offshore and onshore. The categories of the technical data are summarised as below. For more information kindly, contact the Asset Manager.
