The contract covers an area of 500 square meters which encompasses the three discovery wells on Thali block and additional key wells. It was attributed to DMT Petrologist GmbH & Co following a tender to which took part six international firms.
Tower resources explained in a statement that the reprocessing work will provide higher resolution imaging and help obtain additional information to upgrade the existing prospect inventory on the Thali block.

We expect to crystallize greater confidence in the volumetric estimates of existing leads and prospects as well as identifying new ones. This will form the basis for our drilling plans (…)We look forward to working with DMT Petrologic and will update shareholders as the work proceeds", Jeremy Asher, Chairman & CEO of Tower resources said.
