Namibia Petroleum Operators Association (NAMPOA) elects new leadership

 Klaus Endresen, General Manager for the Norwegian oil company BW Kudu, was re-elected as the chairperson of Namibia Petroleum Operators Association (NAMPOA).

Martin Negonga, National Petroleum Corporation of Namibia (NAMCOR)'s Upstream Exploration Asset Manager, has been elected as the new vice chairperson, taking over from Brigette Verner of ExxonMobil.

Tironenn Kauluma of Eco Atlantic will chair the Legal committee, and Maria Mbudhi of Rhino Resources will head the Public Relations committee. 

"Namibia has become an international hot spot for the global oil and gas industry," said Endresen. 

"The interest for exploration opportunities in Namibia is significant, and the leadership capacity of NAMPOA has been expanded to enable the handling of the increasing workload for our association." 

Rachel Msiska of NAMCOR will serve as the Coordinator for the NAMPOA management. 

NAMPOA, established in 1992, is a not-for-profit association representing the Namibian upstream oil and gas industry. 

It serves as a forum for professional interaction and its membership includes oil and gas companies operating in Namibia. 

Since independence, exploration companies have invested over N$30 billion in Namibia, according to NAMPOA.
