Angola LNG ships first cargo to Brazil
SOYO, Angola -- LNG production has safely commenced at the Angola LNG plant in Soyo. The first cargo was sold to Angola's state oil & gas company Sonangol and is currently being shipped to Brazil by the SS Sonangol Sambizanga, one of seven 160,000-cm LNG vessels that are under long-term charter to the Angola LNG project.
The Angolan fuel is to be delivered to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, where it will be regasified at Petrobras' Terminal in Guanabara Bay and injected into the company's gas grid to supply the Brazilian market, mainly supplying the thermoelectric plant demand.
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. The project has an expected life of at least 30 years.
