Tower Resources plc is an AIM-listed oil and gas company with a focus on Africa, active in Cameroon, Namibia and South Africa. The company’s Thali license in Cameroon covers an existing discovery containing 18 million bbls of oil (contingent resources, best estimate), with significantly greater prospective resources identified nearby in the block.
The company’s primary objective is to get the existing discovery into production in 2021 to generate cash flow. The company’s Namibian exploration license in the Walvis basin has already attracted interest from major oil companies, and the company’s exploration license in South Africa (operated by 50% partner NewAge) adjoins the blocks 11B/12B where Total made its 1 million boe Brulpadda discovery in 2019.
