Source: 10/4/2022, Location: Asia

Angkor Resources Corp. announces its energy subsidiary, EnerCam Resources Corp. (Cambodia) Co. Ltd. (EnerCam) has received final licensing for exploration, development, and production on Block VIII onshore Cambodia.

Mike Weeks, President of EnerCam, comments, “We are excited about moving oil and gas forward in Cambodia as we believe this is a monumental change for the entire country. Having its own long-term source of energy for LNG, for fuels, and a whole variety of products currently imported into Cambodia will advance this country to a new level. It starts with exploration on Block VIII; we see gas shows, oil seeps, and other indications on the license that point us in a potential direction for discovery.”

Initial reconnaissance over the license area by exploration experts indicates a sedimentary foreland basin. Geologists performing on-the-ground reconnaissance found numerous oil seeps and gas seeps across the targeted areas.

Initial phases of exploration on Block VIII will include the acquisition of available seismic, which will then have comprehensive analysis completed. Preliminary magnetics on the targeted areas will also be part of the first phase work plan.

The licensed area is on the southwest corner of Cambodia. The permitting is for an initial three-year exploration term and two further renewal terms of two years each. Development and production terms are for 25 years with additional renewals.

Exploration will be undertaken outside of park areas, part of EnerCam’s ESG mandate so the Company assists in protecting Cardamon Mountains National Park and Preah Monivong and Kirirom National Parks.

D Weeks, CEO of Angkor, comments, “Until countries have accomplished sourcing sufficient renewable energy to meet global demand, cleaner and greener use of hydrocarbons plays a vital role in every country’s energy balance. Cambodia needs its own source of energy, and we look forward to actively exploring and producing energy for Cambodia, all the while establishing strong ESG principles in a new sector of the country. “

On the impact for people, she continues, “This is also a huge opportunity for human resource development with a significant new industry sector for Cambodia. Implementing best practices for energy creation with hydrocarbons brings positive development and a template for the entire country. We can use what we have learned elsewhere to minimize the carbon footprint and maximize the benefits to the economy and the population.”
