Angola to achieve self-sufficiency in fuel production

LUANDA, February 15, 2019 – President João Lourenço has pledged to shore up Angola’s self-sufficiency and competitiveness in the production of refined products such as fuels and lubricants, local media reported Thursday.


Speaking at a swearing-in ceremony for several state oil and gas positions, the president said Angola would achieve its goals through the expansion of the country’s sole refinery in Luanda, allowing its production to quadruple by 2021.

President Lourenço also said the construction of two refineries in Cabinda and Lobito would help Angola reach its downstream targets, Agência Angola Press reported.
