Norway's Equinor reaffirms commitment to Angola

Norway's Equinor, which this year celebrates 30 years in Angola, reaffirmed its commitment to the country. During the Angola Oil & Gas conference, the company shared its achievements and future plans.


A statement sent to VerAngola said that the senior vice presidents of Equinor Exploration and Production International, Paul McCafferty and Gustavo Baquero, and Nina Koch, Equinor's country manager, emphasised "their commitment to Angola, as well as their successful collaborations with the angolan authorities".

"Celebrating its thirtieth anniversary in Angola this year, the norwegian energy company shared its achievements and future plans, as well as solutions to the challenges faced in the global oil and gas industry," the statement said.

Equinor is a partner in eight offshore production fields in the Congo basin and has "been a driving force in the country's exploration and production industry".

According to the statement, the company - which has capital production of around 120,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day - said it was committed to deepening partnerships in Angola, with a view to "boosting the sector activity and further positioning itself as a major competitor in hydrocarbons".

At the conference, company representatives had an "active role in several high-level panel discussions, promoting both the company's position as a global energy leader and Angola's position as a top hydrocarbon market."
