VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 8, 2022 /CNW/ - Reconnaissance Energy Africa Ltd. (the "Company" or "ReconAfrica") (TSXV: RECO) (OTCQX: RECAF) (Frankfurt: 0XD) is pleased to announce its new business relationship with Alvarez & Marsal and Hannam & Partners. The two companies will work closely with ReconAfrica in managing its evolving data room as well as launching a global reach to potential, high quality, joint venture partners to join the Company's initial exploration program in the Kavango sedimentary basin, NE Namibia.
Alvarez & Marsal
Alvarez & Marsal (New York, New York) incorporated 1983, is one of the world's fastest growing professional and energy consulting firms with over 6,000 employees on five continents in over 30 countries. The company has established extensive global relationships in the energy sector with a solid track record in maximizing enterprise value through strategic partnerships. With ReconAfrica's active drilling and seismic programs, Alvarez & Marsal will play a key role in managing the Company's developing data room as part of the joint venture process.
Hannam & Partners

Their core business is focused on energy and natural resources transactions, with significant experience across Sub-Saharan Africa. Between their senior partners, they have a combined over 135 years of experience and have raised over US$330 billion under a wide array of business structures for clients around the world. In this joint effort in developing strategic joint venture partners for ReconAfrica's interests in the Kavango basin, Hannam & Partners will play the leading role in consolidating current interest from potential partners as well as leveraging their international energy relationships to secure additional interest from potential strategic joint venture partners.
"The primary objective of combining the specific expertise and solid track record of both Alvarez & Marsal and Hannam & Partners along with their extensive industry relationships is to maximize the opportunity in attracting high quality, efficient industry partners to join ReconAfrica in the competent and sustainable exploration and development of the Kavango sedimentary basin", stated Craig Steinke, Chairman of ReconAfrica.
