Lüderitz - Southern Africa's least explored basin?

Namibia is quickly becoming one of the hottest areas for exploration globally, following the announcement of the large Graff & Venus discoveries. But is the prospectivity limited to the Orange Basin in the south? Here we investigate the hugely under-explored Lüderitz Basin, sandwiched between the Walvis Basin to the north and the Orange Basin to the south.

With many characteristics in common with the Orange Basin, could the Lüderitz Basin replicate the recent drilling successes witnessed to the south?
