The Oil & Gas Year Angola 2019
“Policies must better serve the interests of Angola as a country, and of the investors that are willing to invest in the future of Angola.” João Lourenço, President of the Republic of Angola
The Oil & Gas Year Angola 2019 has been produced in partnership with the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Petroleum; the National Oil, Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANPG); PwC; AmCham Angola; and the Association of Service Providers of the Angolan Oil & Gas Industry.
The Oil & Gas Year Angola 2019 analyses the reforms pushed by the administration of President João Lourenço – which include the kick-start of the Sonangol Regeneration Programme, the creation of the oil and gas regulatory agency ANPG, and incentives for marginal field development and exploration work – as well as the views and perspectives of the key players in the Angolan oil and gas value chain.
“There is still a lot of potential for exploration in Angola, not just in the upcoming Namibe Basin, but also in the Congo River Basin, which is where production is centred now.” Olivier Jouny, General Director, Total E&P Angola
The Oil & Gas Year Angola 2019 also features a pull-out map with the 2019 licence areas and ANPG’s 2019-2025 licensing strategy, an initiative that will see 55 blocks assigned in the coming six years.
The book features dozens of interviews, including with:
- Minister of Mineral Resources and Petroleum Diamantino Pedro Azevedo
- ANPG CEO Paulino Jerónimo
- Sonangol chairman of the board of directors Sebastião Gaspar Martins
This sixth edition of The Oil & Gas Year Angola includes the most up-to-date, in-depth analysis and is a comprehensive guide to the Angolan energy market – it underlines the government’s initiatives to reinvigorate the Angolan oil and gas industry and identifies the country’s potential and untapped opportunities.
