Wednesday, June 5, 2019

At the first ever Angola Oil & Gas Conference and Exhibition, Sonangol E.P CEO, Sebastião Gasper Martins announced that it had awarded a construction contract for the production unit at the Luanda Refinery.

United Shine and Sonangol signed a contract for the gasoline production unit of the Luanda Refinery. In addition to the Luanda refinery, Sonangol also signed a partnership agreement with United Shine for the Cabinda Refinery.

Martins said this move would see an increase in the country’s supply capacity and reduce imports while multiplying the country’s fuel capacity by four.

Construction on the gasoline production unit will also contribute to the government’s goal to increase local content implementation, create 600 long-term job opportunities and over 1,000 jobs during the construction phase.

This project is a result of a cooperation agreement signed between Sonangol and ENI.
