Savannah Petroleum will commence its airborne Full Tensor Gradiometry (FTG) survey on the R1/R2 license area.
The commencement of the survey was marked by ceremony at Niamey Airport on Friday 21 November 2014 in the presence of representatives of the Niger Ministry of Energy and Petroleum and other guests, as well as representatives of Savannah Petroleum and ARKeX, a leading geophysical service company who will be conducting the FTG survey.
During the survey the ARKeX N344CS Twin Otter aircraft will operate from China National Petroleum Corporation's Jaouro airstrip which is located in close proximity to the R1/R2 permit. The N344CS will make a series of daily flights over the R1/R2 license area and its surrounds, acquiring valuable geological data which it is anticipated will materially expand the Company's existing R1/R2 exploration target inventory. The survey is expected to be completed in Q1 2015.
