According to a statement by ANPG, the information is related to the blocks of Lower Congo (CON1, CON5 and CON6) and Kwanza (KON5, KON6, KON8, KON9, KON17 and KON20).

The national concessionaire and holder of the mining rights for the prospecting, exploration, evaluation, development and production of liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons throughout the country promises to "shortly" make the official announcement for the start of the new bids.

"According to the Schedule of Activities of the Bidding Process 2020, all the conditions were created so that by the end of May the announcement of the intention to launch the tender was made public", according to the Presidential Decree 86/18, of 2 April, refers to the note.

However, due to the constraints caused by the covid-19 pandemic, 'the date may be adjusted slightly'.

Entities wishing to consult the available basin data, as well as participate in a presentation (Data Show Room) that the concessionaire will make, should express their interest through the ANPG website.
