Angola LNG sells first LPG cargo

Angola LNG has shipped its first LPG cargo from its plant in Soyo, Angola.

The cargo was sold to Angola state oil and gas company Sonangol, on a free on board Soyo basis and shipped by the LPG carrier BW Broker, Angola LNG said. All LPG and condensate products have been committed for sale to the shareholder affiliates of Angola LNG.

The LPG and condensate jetty was commissioned immediately before loading and included testing of safety devices, mooring arrangements, and loading arms, the company said.

In addition to LNG production, Angola LNG’s liquids infrastructure includes storage tanks for 88,000 cu m of propane, 59,000 cu m of butane, and 108,000 cu m of condensate. It has a jetty dedicated to propane, butane, and condensate loading and a second jetty for pressurized butane loadings for the domestic market.

Angola LNG has delivered its LNG first cargo mid-2013 to Petroleo Brasileiro SA’s floating regasification terminal in Guanabara Bay, Rio de Janeiro.

At full production, the $10 billion export plant will be able to supply 5.2 million tonnes/year of LNG, in addition to propane, butane, and condensate.

Angola LNG is a partnership of Sonangol 22.8%, Chevron Corp. 36.4%, BP PLC 13.6%, Eni SPA 13.6%, and Total SA 13.6% (OGJ Online, July 25, 2013).
