The Republic of Namibia is in southern Africa. Its western border is the Atlantic Ocean and it shares land borders with Angola and Zambia to the north, Botswana to the east and South Africa to the south and east. Its capital and largest city is Windhoek. Namibia has a population of 2.1 million people and covers over 800,000 square kilometres. It is one of the least densely populated countries in the world. Deserts, notably the Namib running along Namibia’s entire coastline and the Kalahari, cover much of the country. Agriculture, herding, tourism and the mining industry – including mining for gem diamonds, uranium, gold, silver, and base metals – form the backbone of Namibia's economy.

Namibia is one of our strategic supply hubs. We have been upgrading vital infrastructure in line with our strategy to ensure a seamless supply of products in local markets through the development of regional storage facilities.
When we acquired two terminals in Namibia in 2011 – including the Walvis Bay depot, which handles a growing proportion of the country’s oil imports – we rebuilt them to international standards and increased their capacity. We have continued work to increase capacity at Walvis Bay, Namibia’s only deepwater port and to complete other major upgrades that will further improve operational performance. Our storage capacity in Namibia now stands at 131,400m³, our third largest in Africa.
Our efforts are helping the Namibian economy to grow. We employ local contractors to undertake our construction projects. Moreover, Walvis Bay and other terminals provide products that are for sale at dealer-operated service stations across Namibia, indirectly generating employment for local people.
We have upgraded our retail sites through an ambitious pump replacement program and we are training service station staff to ensure we deliver the best customer service. We now have 55 retail sites and we are a supplier of Castrol lubricants.

Namibia is known for its ecotourism and wildlife and there are numerous lodges and reserves. For a truly amazing adventure, visit Dune No.7 – the tallest sand dune in Africa in the Namiba desert. It’s next to Puma Energy's Walvis Bay bulk storage terminal. For food and drink, why not try an English breakfast Namibian style, or the Mataku watermelon wine.
