The SouthWest Energy Base Camp in the Jijiga Basin is the temporary home to a team of 150 contractors.

The camp was built in April 2011 with the first contractors on site in May. Since then they have completed parameter testing and are now focussing on seismic data collection.  The camp was designed and built to international standards by a team with experience in international oil and gas projects.

The seismic acquisition programme was completed on 10th February 2012.
