Tlou Energy Ltd, a company focused on delivering power in Botswana and southern Africa through the development of coal bed methane (CBM), has reported that work has commenced on the planned 250KM 2D seismic program across its 100% owned Lesedi CBM project and the adjacent Mamba permit.

"Tlou is extremely pleased to have the Seismic program running and to be working with Velseis, who are highly experienced in this area.  This survey will give us the opportunity to expand our Gas Reserves and Resources as we progress towards developing the first CBM gas to power project in Botswana, said Tlou's Managing Director Tony Gilby. “The seismic survey will assist in the next step of our plan to drill more wells by providing us with enhanced knowledge of the sub-surface in our project areas.  Results from subsequent core well analysis may also lead to further Gas Reserve and Resources and consequently add further value to Tlou.

The seismic survey will stretch across 250 km of the company's Lesedi and Mamba projects including over part of the Mining Licence area. The 2D seismic program will target areas considered to be highly prospective for the addition of gas reserves.

The aim is to increase gas reserves at both the Lesedi and Mamba projects. The results of the program will facilitate location of vertical drill holes to further confirm gas volumes in the ground.

Gilby concluded: “We look forward to updating the market as the seismic program progresses."
