The National Petroleum Corporation of Namibia (Namcor) has opened two new retail service stations around the country. These sites will cater for the fuelling needs of the roughly 6 700 residents of Khorixas in northwest Namibia and the 3 000-plus residents of Ekuku in Oshakati. According to Namcor, both sites are conveniently situated to serve the communities in which they operate.
In addition to providing a wide range of fuel and lubricants, the new Namcor service stations will offer food and beverage options in their 24-hour convenience stores.
Immanuel Mulunga, managing director of Namcor, stated “Namcor continues to implement its expansion strategy across Namibia, in line with the directives of our visionary board of directors. These retail sites will create employment opportunities and stimulate the economic recovery of the operational areas, benefitting the local economy and providing sustainable economic value to their respective regions”.
He added that Namcor will continue to serve the nation by way of its expansion strategy that will see the opening of retail sites in key strategic locations across Namibia, and potentially in neighbouring countries. There are five new sites currently under construction, with a further eight under development in all corners of the country.
Namcor is a legally enacted entity under the Namibian Companies Act of 1973, with government as its primary stakeholder. Acting under the Petroleum (Exploration and Production) Act of 1991, the company has a mandate to carry out reconnaissance, exploration and production operations.
