Invictus Awards Polaris Seismic Contract for Cabora Bassa Project

Invictus Energy has contracted a 2D seismic survey as part of the Phase 2 exploration campaign in the Cabora Bassa Basin.

Preparations are also underway for the Mukuyu-2 appraisal well, targeting multiple hydrocarbon intervals encountered in Mukuyu-1 and aiming to confirm a commercial discovery.
