Wednesday, May 29, 2019

Sonangol awarded its refined products buy tender for the next 12 months to Total and Trafigura. Total will supply Angola with gasoline while Trafigura will supply diesel and marine diesel.

The news of the tender comes on the back of Angola facing one of its worst fuel shortages in years. Sonangol blamed the shortage on difficulties accessing hard currency as well as unpaid debts owed to the energy company by industrial clients.
