The East Africa-focused oil and gas exploration company has appointed BellGeospace, a gravity gradiometry company, as the contractor of the block. Results are expected next month, company sources said.

Block 11B comprises an area of approximately 14,200 sq km covering the Loeli, Lotikipi, Gatome and South Gatome Basins. The basins are reportedly similar to the Lokichar Basin where significant oil discoveries like Ngamia-1 and Twiga South-1 have been tested in recent months.

Chris Matchette-Downes, chief executive officer of Adamantine Energy, said, “We are delighted to work with BellGeospace. We believe that gravity-gradiometry data is essential for pre-defining the basins’ potential.

“This data, together with our other exploration data-sources combine to enable us to incrementally target our exploration efforts within Block 11B.”
