Welcome to 
Torque Africa 

To date, the TORQUE AFRICA consists of 4 entities, namely:

  • Torque Africa Exploration (Pty) Ltd
  • Torque Projects (Pty) Ltd
  • Torque Exploration Solutions (Pty) Ltd
  • Torque Namibia Drilling CC

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 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.

TORQUE AFRICA is well equipped to offer a wide range of services ranging from Borehole Drilling to Specialist (Geotechnical Exploration) Drilling projects. We have provided our expert service throughout South Africa and as far afield as Pakistan, Mauritania, Ethiopia and Tajikistan, located in central Asia.

To offer these specialised services, TORQUE AFRICA consists of a well-established fleet, including 95 licenced vehicles, 20 of which are Percussion RC Rotary Drilling rigs. Numerous light delivery vehicles, compressors and boosters are included in the fleet.

A total of 104 individuals are employed throughout the companies to offer our clients the best service.

Breaking own Record - 1402m Beaufort West

Miraculous Drilling,Surpassing our African Record in Beaufort West. On the 9th of August 2018, Torque Africa Exploration surpassed its previous record of 1148m, for percussion drilling in Springs, by drilling a 1402m hole in Beaufort West. Drilling started on the 14th June with 216mm bit to a depth of 162m. Bits were changed to 165mm and drilling continued in shifts to 582m. We once again stepped down to 140mm and the original hole was completed at 706m. After discussion with the client, the decision was made to drill to 1400m. Drilling restarted on the 30th of July at 706m. Once again shift work was implemented. On the 7th of August we surpassed our previous record, and on the 9th of August we completed the hole at 1402m - a New African Record. After the hole was surveyed, a deviation of 1 degree was found on the total depth.
