Angola LNG has delivered its first 160 000 m3 cargo to Brazil. The cargo left Soyo aboard the SS Sonagol Sambizanga LNG carrier in June and has now been safely unloaded at Petrobras’ regasification terminal in Guanabara Bay, Rio de Janeiro.
Commenting on the first cargo delivery Artur Pereira, CEO, Angola LNG Marketing Ltd said: “Our main priority is safe and reliable production and delivery of Angolan LNG to the world. We have demonstrated this with our first cargo.”
At full production it is expected that over 70 cargoes per year will leave the Angola LNG plant, supplying 5.2 million tpy of LNG, plus propane, butane and condensate.
A large number of master LNG sale and purchase agreements have been executed with energy companies across the world, providing Angola LNG with a robust and diverse portfolio of customers. Further agreements are currently being negotiated.
Angola LNG is a partnership between Sonangol, Chevron, BP, ENI and Total that will gather and process gas to produce and deliver LNG and NGLs.
