Angola to increase its oil and gasoline refining capacity

Angola is planning to strengthen the its oil and fuel refining capability to fulfill domestic vitality demand while reducing vitality imports and maximizing the monetization of power assets for regional and international markets – Minister of Mineral Resources, Oil and Gas, H.E. Diamantino de Azevedo has revealed.
Speaking at a gathering in Huambo province within the central region, the minister acknowledged that building new refineries and modernizing present ones will enable Angola to maintain its vitality supply while decreasing costs incurred from vitality imports.

In จำหน่ายเกจวัดแรงดัน , a 200,000-bpd refinery is being developed in Lobito province with Sonangol having selected Japanese conglomerate, JGC Holdings, to offer required providers. With the Russia-Ukraine tensions causing a spike in oil costs, boosting Angola’s oil and fuel refining capacity will also scale back Angola’s vulnerability to risky international energy costs.
Moreover, with new projects corresponding to Eni’s Ndungu early manufacturing venture and TotalEnergies’ CLOV Floating Production, Storage and Offloading unit, increasing Angola’s production and refining capability will enable Angola to maximize the monetization of its energy sources. As a end result, Angola will increase the trading of ready-to-use fuels with Europe because the bloc seeks alternative power suppliers to reduce back reliance on Russian assets.
