The KBSMM is a de-risking Knowledge Based (KB) logic framework centred on the optimum coexistence of the environment, minerals and energy sectors. To date, more 300 projects in various sectors have been successfully and proudly supported by RBS through the AI powered KBSMM de-risking KB system logic, developed by Dr Sindila Mwiya in 2003. As the leader in KB de-risking approaches, the company has been breaking new grounds in environment, minerals, oil and gas and energy coexistence sectoral focused spaces.

RBS has successfully and proudly supported the following large-scale national key ground-breaking resources related projects in Namibia:

  • The first offshore oil and gas well drilling operations after independences (the Kunene -1 Well) which was drilling in 2007-2008 and RBS continued to support the last twelve (12) offshore oil and gas wells that have been drilled offshore Namibia by various major global operators such as Chariot, Repsol, Petrobras, HRT Africa, Tullow, and Shell.
  • The first and successive wells that have discovered oil and gas in the Orange Basin offshore Namibia.
  • The first offshore Multiclient and Proprietary (Exclusive) 2D and 3D seismic surveys operations in the Namibe, Walvis, Lüderitz and Orange Basins in the post-independent Namibia and to date RBS continue to support all the major global marine seismic operators such as PGS, TGS, CGG, Searcher, EMGS, and Eastern Echo.
  • The first onshore 2D proprietary seismic survey operations in the Etosha, Nama and Kavango Basins in Namibia and RBS continue to support global operators globally such as MEL and ReconAfrica.
  • The first post-independence onshore oil and gas wells drilling operations covering the Kawe, Mbambi and Makandina wells drilled in the Kavango Basin and RBS continue to support ongoing de-risking operations of the onshore basins of Namibia covering the Kavango, Etosha and Nama Basins being undertaken by multiple global operators.

  • The first national grid connected Wind Farm in Namibia, the 9MW Lüderitz Windfarm Facility, and RBS continue to support the proposed large-scale Windfarms projects in different parts of Namibia.
  • Supported multiple first projects covering Exclusive Prospecting Licenses, Mining Licenses (MLs), Petroleum Exploration Licenses (PEL), minerals and petroleum exploration, mining, Green Hydrogen, and other large-scale industrial development projects countrywide.
  • RBS will be there when one day the first offshore and onshore oil and gas production will ignite the national shared economic emancipation and greatly and positively transform the economic landscape of Namibia for the benefits of all its current and future generations.
