[DATA CME:CAMAC Energy Inc] added that the seismic survey, paired with the previously completed airborne gravity and magnetic surveys, will be used to help identify potential drilling targets on the blocks.

“The preliminary results from data processing in the field are encouraging. These seismic surveys are fundamental to advancing our onshore Kenya work program and our understanding of the resource potential on these blocks and will help us determine potential locations to begin our exploration drilling," said Segun Omidele, senior vice president of exploration and production at CAMAC Energy.
