Dual of onshore oil blocks located in the Nama Basin. The Basin is situated between Namibia and Botswana and is comparable tectonically with regions elsewhere that contain major petroleum occurrences and fields. New stratigraphic data allow relatively precise correlations with the petroliferous Neoproterozoic to Cambrian successions of Oman, Siberia, and China. Equivalent successions also occur in the Owambo basin north of the Damara orogen in Namibia and Angola, in the Passarge basin of Botswana, and in the Sao Françisco basin in Brazil.

A single well was drilled on one of the blocks and some gas was detected and the belief is that maybe the well was not deep enough to intersect the oil strata (annexure below with proposed well location and basins of Namibia).
