WINDHOEK, Namibia --Nabirm Energy Services says it is planning a 2D seismic survey in license block 2113A in the Walvis basin offshore Namibia.

The proposed area of the 2D seismic survey will cover 1,050 km (652 mi) with low-density spaced survey lines spanning approximately 2,500 sq km (965 sq mi). Water in the proposed survey area is 50 m to 150 m (164 ft to 492 ft) in depth, and the distance from shore ranges between 10 and 50 km (6.2 and 31 mi).

The company has appointed CCA Environmental (pty) Ltd. to examine the baseline environmental conditions of the licensed survey area to evaluate the potential impacts of the proposed seismic survey and to present the findings in an environmental impact assessment.
