Angola forms consortium with five oil firms for $2B LNG project
Angola has formed a consortium with five international oil companies including Eni and Chevron to develop liquefied natural gas (LNG) for its Soyo plant, the newly formed national oil, gas and biofuels agency ANGP said.
The consortium’s project will have an initial cost of $2 billion, with an aim to start production by 2022, an ANGP spokesman said on the sidelines of the Africa Oil Week conference in Cape Town.
Italy’s Eni will operate the project, and the members will share costs according to participation.
Chevron will take a 31% stake, Eni 25.6%, Sonangol P&P 19.8%, Total 11.8% and BP 11.8%.
The Soyo LNG plant is designed to process 1.1 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day and has the capacity to produce 5.2 million tons of LNG per year, as well as natural gas, propane, butane and condensate.

Best Practices in Supporting Front Line HPI Operations Remotely in Response to Covid-19
To ensure employee safety, HPI companies had to quickly pivot to a remote support model with many subject matter experts (SMEs) and engineering staff working remotely supporting front line, sequestered critical operations and field operators.
What are the best practices and lessons learned from this new remote operational support model? What have been technologies and work processes that are enabling effective and efficient remote operational support? Is this the “new norm” going forward even when the impact of Covid-19 abates? If not, how will remote support of critical operations be changed?
If this topic and questions are of interest to you and your organization, please attend this special HPI webinar with a panel of leading industry customer experts who will discuss their perspectives. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions for the panelists.
