King Frans Indongo, a Namibian local partner and proposed director of Windfire, commented, "This transaction is expected to result in another major investment into the Namibian oil and gas sector and demonstrates the confidence that a globally respected company like Windfire and its management team has the immense potential for discovering oil or additional gas in Namibia. We will work closely with our Canadian partners not only with the goal of finding oil in Namibia but also in striving to ensure that we contribute to the advancement of the Namibian nation. Windfire brings capital expertise, leading technical experts with significant offshore discovery success, and a work program to lead to oil development in our great country. With our international partners, Namibia is well positioned to realize its goal of energy independence."
