The mines minister, Tom Alweendo, has welcomed the news of the oil discovery by Galp and partners Custos and Namcor in the Orange Basin as a further demonstration of Namibia’s ability to attract top-tier partners making world-scale investments.

Galp announced Wednesday that the results of test work on the Mopane-1X well indicate a significant oil discovery.

The Mopane-1X was one of two wells where drilling started on November 17, 2023. The other one is Mopane-2X. Galp has an 80% interest in PEL83, with Custos and Namcor each having 10%.

Last week, Galp said the first well, Mopane-1X, indicated preliminary signs of hydrocarbon presence.
