Angola LNG production peak expected to be reached next year

The second quarter of next year was identified as the possible deadline for the Angola LNG factory to reach peak production, with the number rising from the current 700 million to one billion cubic feet of gas per day. Growth in production terms, which according to Amilton Cunha, executive director of the factory, will be the result of some investments that are underway in the unit, as well as the increase in the amount of associated and non-associated gas to be supplied to it.


In this way, according to the person responsible, the project will receive more gas (associated and non-associated) from both offshore oil platforms and through other consortiums, writes Angop.

He also highlighted the fact that the Government's investment and support from shareholders contribute to the development of infrastructure.

"The commitment of our Executive, through the Ministry of Mineral Resources, Oil and Gas, as well as the support of the company's shareholders, Sonangol, Total Energy, Chevron, Azul Energy and others, have served as an incentive for the development of the factory", he stated, speaking to Angop.

Furthermore, he also highlighted the quality of production, stating that the unit has produced metric quantities of high quality and added that, at the moment, production makes it possible to make approximately fifty ships full of gas available on the world market every month.

"We are a plant that supplies liquefied gas, which is transition energy. Therefore, we have a strong component in our country in supplying clean gas to all parts of the world", he said, adding that the company has a unit in London, which is in charge of marketing the finished product.

In terms of butane gas, the person responsible made it known that the factory – which is located in Soyo (Zaire) – assumes responsibility for the total of this gas that is consumed internally, producing around 125 million cubic meters per day, the amount of which, he added, it is sent to Sonagás, which is in charge of developing the domestic gas market nationally, writes Angop.

It should be noted that this project is one of the largest energy projects in Africa, and is also the first liquefied natural gas project in the country.
