The first cargo was sold to Sonangol, Angola's state oil & gas company, on a Free on Board (FOB) Soyo basis and shipped by the LPG carrier BW Broker. All LPG and condensate products have been committed for sale to the shareholder affiliates of Angola LNG.

The LPG and condensate jetty was commissioned immediately prior to commencement of loading operations.  Commissioning included the testing of safety devices, mooring arrangements and loading arms.

Commenting on the first cargo Artur Pereira, CEO, Angola LNG Marketing, said: "In addition to LNG production for international markets propane, butane and condensate production at Angola LNG is an important part of our operational and commercial activity.  Our LPG and condensate production will help to supply both domestic and export markets with their energy needs."

In addition to its LNG facilities Angola LNG's liquids infrastructure at its production plant in Soyo includes storage tanks for 88,000 m3 of propane, 59,000 m3 of butane, and 108,000 m3 of condensate.  It has a jetty dedicated to propane, butane and condensate loading and a second jetty for pressurised butane loadings which will serve the domestic market.

Today's announcement marks a further milestone in the continued development of Angola's oil and gas resources and provides a new source of energy for Angola and export markets.

Angola LNG Limited is an incorporated joint venture between Sonangol, Chevron, BP, ENI and Total that will gather and process gas to produce and deliver LNG and NGLs.  The plant has an expected life of at least 30 years.

Notes to editors:

Angola LNG will gather, process, sell and deliver 5.2 million tons per year of LNG - plus natural gas, propane, butane and condensate - from its plant in Soyo, Angola; one of the world's most modern LNG processing facilities. Angola is the second-largest oil producer in sub-Saharan Africa. Historically associated gas has been flared or re-injected into the reservoirs, but Angola LNG provides a solution to reduce emissions and establish a new source of clean energy.

Shareholders of Angola LNG Limited are Sonangol (22.8%), Chevron (36.4%), BP (13.6%), ENI (13.6%), and Total (13.6%).

At $10bn the Angola LNG infrastructure is one of the largest ever single investments in the Angolan oil and gas industry. Offering a dedicated fleet of seven LNG vessels and three loading jetties (LNG, liquids and compressed butane) Angola LNG's mission is to contribute to the elimination of gas flaring, provide clean and reliable energy to customers and maximize return on investment.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
