Downstream generally refers to the refining of crude oil, as well as the marketing and distribution of petroleum products derived from this activity. We are very active in the sourcing and selling, as well as the distribution of petroleum products
In line with this, NAMCOR’s downstream strategy is to establish and secure strategically located fuels and lubricant distribution networks, as well as sales infrastructure to boost the company’s brand and provide world-class service to you, our valued customers and business partners.
We are duly committed to not only penetrate but also grow the Commercial (B2B) and Retail fuels and lubricants markets, in all profitable sectors, as well as to explore the export marketing the SADC region.
Our main objectives are to secure alternative sources of supply and to establish reliable networks with various suppliers from which products can be sourced. We are also dedicated to the establishment of export markets to contribute revenue through cross-border trade of products through the port of Walvis Bay. NAMCOR is still an active participant in the country’s downstream industry, holding a Wholesale License to import 100% of its petroleum product requirements.
The Commercial Business Unit has since its inception established and developed a number of bulk fuel storage depots in key locations, from where it services valued customers.
NAMCOR has successfully refurbished a 650,000 litre capacity state of the art bulk storage depot in Otjiwarongo, from where it trades a full range of refined petroleum products (Fuels, Lubes and IP) and service customers in the surrounding areas and Government agencies (near north & far north).
NAMCOR also holds 25% shareholding equity in the Engen Depot in Keetmanshoop from where smaller towns, such as Tses, Koes, Bethanie, Berseba, Aroab, Karasbur and Noordoewer are served.
This includes a Depot in Mariental in the Hardap Region in the southern part of the country, from where our products are supplied to towns, such as Stampriet, Gibeon, Maltahohe, Aranos and Gochas amongst other.
