Caltex® brand returns to Namibia via Chevron

Chevron has appointed Bachmus as a licensee to sell, market and distribute fuels in Namibia under the Caltex brand.
This partnership marks the return of the Caltex brand to the Namibian market, where Bachmus will handle the sale, marketing, and distribution of Caltex-branded fuels.
Chevron re-entered the Namibian upstream sector by becoming the operator of the PEL 90, an offshore deepwater block located in the Orange Basin, in 2022.
In April 2024, Chevron acquired an 80 per cent operating interest in the offshore block PEL 82 in the Walvis Basin.
Vice President of Chevron International Products, Danielle Lincoln, highlighted the significance of this re-entry into Namibia’s retail market.
“Re-entering the Namibia retail market is a significant milestone for Chevron. Through a nationwide network of retail fuel sites, we plan to build the strength of the Caltex brand in close collaboration with Bachmus.
“The brand promises quality and reliable energy to motorists in Namibia. We are confident that this partnership will generate new growth opportunities and look forward to a long and successful relationship,” Lincoln said.
Managing Director of Bachmus, Corne Schalkwyk,  expressed enthusiasm about the partnership.
“We are honored to partner with Chevron as they return to Namibia’s retail market with its Caltex brand. Bachmus has the expertise and the infrastructure to support the growth of Caltex branded fuel stations in Namibia.
“We believe the synergies between Bachmus and Chevron will bring great value for the consumers in the form of quality products and services. We look forward to collaborating closely with them to provide energy solutions to the Namibia market,” Schalkwyk said.
Caltex is a globally recognized premium brand with a significant presence in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. The reintroduction of Caltex in Namibia underlines Chevron’s commitment to providing high-quality energy solutions and underscores the potential for significant growth and development in the region’s fuel market.
