Namibia poised to become leading oil producer


Three more oil reservoirs were discovered following the drilling for hydrocarbons in the Mopane well in the offshore Orange Basin. 

Ministry of Mines and Energy Petroleum Commissioner Maggy Shino stated that a droplet size distribution will soon be concluded, while an assessment of not less than four wells is expected to be drilled in 2025. 

Shino announced that Shell delivered a notice that the Enigma well they were drilling as an exploration well has now turned into a discovery. 

This means that the amount of fuel expected from the well has increased.
