Angola LNG delivers first cargo

Angola LNG has delivered its first cargo to Petroleo Brasileiro SA’s floating regasification terminal in Guanabara Bay, Rio de Janeiro. The cargo left Soyo in June aboard the 160,000-cu m SS Sonangol Sambizanga.

At full production, the $10 billion export plant will be able to ship more than 70 cargoes/year, supplying 5.2 million tonnes/year of LNG, in addition to propane, butane, and condensate, Angola LNG said.

Several master LNG sale and purchase agreements have been executed with energy companies across the world. More agreements are being negotiated.

Angola LNG is a partnership of Angola’s state company Sonangol 22.8%, Chevron Corp. 36.4%, BP PLC 13.6%, Eni SPA 13.6%, and Total SA 13.6%. It will gather and processes gas to produce LNG and natural gas liquids over an expected life of at least 30 years.
