About Angola LNG

Safely producing and delivering Angolan LNG to the world

At $10bn the Angola LNG project, built to create value from offshore gas resources, is one of the largest ever single investments in the Angolan oil and gas industry.

The project is the result of a partnership between Sonangol, Chevron, BP, ENI and Total to gather and process gas and deliver 5.2 million tons of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) a year to the global market.  Additionally the project will supply natural gas to the Angolan market to help meet local industrial and energy needs; and will also produce propane, butane and condensate.

Offering a dedicated fleet of seven LNG vessels and three loading jetties (LNG, liquids and compressed butane), the project’s mission is to minimise the reinjection or flaring of gas; provide clean and reliable energy to customers; and maximise return on investment.

Angola LNG has built one of the world’s most modern LNG processing facilities, located 350km north of Luanda in Soyo, at the mouth of the Congo River. This landmark project for Angola stands out from other global LNG projects as the plant will initially be supplied with associated gas, produced during oil field operations. Angola LNG will therefore significantly contribute to the elimination of gas flaring in the country, allowing for the development of offshore oil reserves in a more environmentally sustainable manner.

LNG enables gas to be transported safely, reliably and economically over long distances; connecting resources to markets, unlocking stranded gas reserves and helping generate cleaner, low carbon power for industry and homes. Now, it is also linking national, regional and international markets and contributing to the growth of a truly global gas market.
