Caption: The Exploration & Production Department is involved in a project that will see more value being placed on high hydro- carbon potential blocks.
The Prospect Inventory Project which is being implemented for the rst time in the E & P department, aims to identify blocks that demonstrate high value. It will assist Government to put value on the blocks, allowing it opportunity to devote its energies appropriately. It will also provide NAMCOR with key technical insight in order to make informed decisions when applying for new blocks.
The department also views the exercise as a key capacity building opportunity, as it has challenged staff to actively research on areas they have done little or no research on. Schlumberger gives Petrel software support which is used for data interpretation of this project.

Caption: NAMCOR’s Managing Director Immanuel Mulunga was recently honoured with a Life Time Achievement Award, by organisers of Africa Oil Week in Cape Town, South Africa.
Mulunga is praised for transforming the oil licensing industry which boomed since he took over in 2003 as the petroleum commissioner. The search for oil attracted international players to Namibia. He vigorously spearheaded Namibia’s campaigns as an attractive destination for hydrocarbon potential, at various oil and gas platforms in the Unites States of America, the United Kingdom and other parts of the world.
A humbled Mulunga expressed appreciation at the award. “I am humbled at this honour, which I gladly accept on behalf of Namibia.”
The Stellenbosch University Masters of Business Administration (MBA) graduate has a wealth of petroleum administration experience, having served as Petroleum Commissioner in the Ministry of Mines & Energy (MME). He held that position for well over a decade from February 2003 up until his appointment as NAMCOR’s chief administrator in October 2015.
Mulunga holds a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry & Zoology from the University of Namibia (UNAM) and a Diploma in Petroleum Policy & Management from PETRAD in Norway.
