South Africa

 Block 11B/12B is located in in the Outeniqua Basin, approximately 175 kilometres off the southern coast of South Africa and covers an area of approximately 19,000 square kilometres with water depths ranging from 200 -1,800 metres.

Canadian Natural had 100% interest in Block 11B/12B offshore South Africa, approximately 200 km offshore between Mossel Bay and Port Elizabeth. The block is prospective for coalescing (deep water) basin floor fans, with amalgamated turbidite sand thickness potentially up to 150m based on seismic data, similar to that in the Forties Fan in the North Sea. As this is deep water with challenging sea conditions, Canadian Natural secured a world class partner for the deep water exploration of its Block 11B/12B with a 50% working interest Farmout Agreement.
