Area news, unfortunately article is behind pay wall: Shell’s hydrocarbon hotspot: Supermajor seeks to drill 10 more wells in prolific Namibia

Shell has filed plans to drill as many as 10 new exploration and appraisal wells on the prolific licence offshore Namibia that hosts its highly promising Jonker, Graff and La Rona discoveries.

The supermajor may also carry out an extended well test on one or more of its discoveries to better understand reservoir connectivity, amid concerns that the creation of new marine protected areas may complicate offshore operations.
