However the company will not adopt these estimates, the entire area will have to be 3 d seismic mapped and several wells will need to be drilled in order to accurately  confirm the size of the oil and gas reserves in the license area and this process is anticipated to take two to three years to complete. There can be no assurance of the results of the test wells until the wells have been drilled and the data recording the actual geological reserves recorded.
