Tamar Block Milestones
Pursuant to an agreement with Spectrum (the “Spectrum Agreement”), Eco carries Spectrum’s 10% Working Interest. Furthermore, its Working Interest may be reduced to 5% under certain circumstances, including without limitation, the farm-in by a third party into the Tamar Block. Eco currently holds an option to buy back Spectrum’s Working Interest for US$1,450,000 prior to a farm-in and US$900,000 after a farm-in.
Pursuant to the Tamar Petroleum Agreement, Eco is required to undertake specific exploration activities on the Tamar Licence during each phase of development.
On 25 June 2018, Eco received a one-year extension to 20 March 2019 for the First Renewal Period from the Petroleum Commissioner of the Republic of Namibia.
