"Great results can be achieved by building strong relationships and a positive team spirit"


Torque Africa Exploration (Pty) Ltd was founded by Mr TN Bezuidenhout, a seasoned drilling operator with more than 20 years of experience in the drilling industry under his belt. Mr Bezuidenhout, having been involved in the drilling industry since 1999 established the flagship company, Torque Africa Exploration (Pty) Ltd in 2014 and the entity has gone from strength to strength since its inception.

Due the great success and an increase in demand for the services offered by Torque Africa Exploration (Pty) Ltd throughout South Africa, the establishment of a sister company was deemed necessary. Torque Projects (Pty) Ltd was established in 2018 to service clients located in Eastern, Western and Northern Cape.

It became evident to Mr Bezuidenhout that a transfer of critical skills relating to the drilling industry needed to be transferred to previous disadvantaged individuals. Torque Exploration Solutions (Pty) Ltd, a level 2 BBBEE company was established, in partnership with Mr Simon Netshiozwi to provide this function.

Torque Namibia Drilling CC was created in 2019 as the first step towards establishing our footprint on the African continent. The entity was established to service clients located in Namibia.
