Azule Energy interested in investing in the Namibe Basin

Azule Energy - a joint venture between the British BP and the Italian ENI, committed to becoming the largest oil and gas production company in the country - showed interest in "all opportunities", saying it was "very committed " with the oil and gas sector in Angola, both at sea and on land.


The company, which officially emerged in March last year, has now announced its interest in exploring the Namibe Basin. The information was advanced by the company's Executive Vice President of Production and Operations, Gordon Birrell, who was received in an audience by Minister Diamantino Azevedo this Thursday, at the headquarters of the Ministry of Mineral Resources, Oil and Gas.

"We talked about our interest in investing in the Namibe basin and many other matters" explained Birrell, quoted by the ministry in a note to which VerAngola had access.

Guido Brusco, executive director of Azule Energy and also a participant in the meeting, said that all members of the management of Azule Energy had visited the ministry. "This is to show our joint BP / ENI commitment in supporting the new company created last year", he explained.

According to the official, the company invested millions of dollars over a year and a half, having achieved an investment in the new gas consortium and in the Block 15/06 project.

For Paulino Jerónimo, PCA of ANPG, the meeting was fruitful, insofar as “block 15/06, the AGOGO field which was recently approved, Block 1/14 which envisages the discovery of gas, the block 18 where three filling wells or the so-called Greenfield wells and Angola LNG and biofuels will be drilled".
