Africa Oil & Power (www.AfricaOilAndPower.com) would like to congratulate Sonangol for reaching the impressive milestone of 45 years of operation.

The Minister of Mineral Resources, Oil and Gas, SE Diamantino Azevedo, said that Sonangol has contributed to the growth and sustainability of the country’s oil industry – thus ensuring better performance for the state – and supported the participation of enterprises and national personnel in the activities of the sector. Sonangol has been a major contributor to the socio-economic development of Angola.

More recent achievements include the implementation of a series of reforms aimed at further boosting sector success and focusing Sonangol’s activities on its specific value chain. By restructuring Sonangol and the sector and transferring the concessionary function to the National Oil, Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANPG), Sonangol was able to become more profitable and efficient.
