UAE to Participate in Namibian Oil and Gas

Sunday, January 20, 2019

Namibia reached an agreement with the UAE to boost relations in the oil and gas sector. The oil and gas agreement came as the two countries met to discuss ways to strengthen cooperation.

During a meeting between Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Namibian President Hage Geingob, bilateral relations between the two countries were addressed.

During the cooperation talks, the Emirati crown prince affirmed his commitment to begin exploring for oil and gas in Namibia.

It comes after the two countries already built up strong ties through the Al-Dahra Namibia project a decade ago.
