AIOGACE will celebrate the astounding progress that the Angolan oil and gas industry, and the country as a whole, has made during the last decade.
â€¢ Angola is now Africaâ€™s second largest oil producer (in 2009 it was the first)
â€¢ Angola accounted for between 2 â€“ 3 per cent of world oil production (2011)
â€¢ The country produces 1.8 million barrels per day and aims to increase to 2 million by 2014.
â€¢ The oil and gas sector contributes over 95 percent of Angolaâ€™s export revenues and over 75 percent of government revenues.
At the same time AIOGACE will look at the future of Angolaâ€™s oil and gas industry with a focus on the:
â€¢ The valorisation of gas resources and exports (Angola has the second largest reserves in Sub-Saharan Africa, 10.9 tcf) The government has announced tax incentives to promote exploration and development of natural gas.
â€¢ The commencement of Angolaâ€™s LNG exports which is expected to start in early 2012, after the completion of the project at Soyo (5.2 million tonnes per annum (mtpa)
â€¢ The New Frontier for Angolan exploration is called the â€œPresaltâ€, at the end of 2011, exploration licenses were awarded and in 2012, the first discoveries of oil were already made. The pre-salt basins, which are believed to be similar to hydrocarbon rich basins offshore Brazil, open a new frontier in petroleum exploration
The main theme of the event is â€œUtilising and Identifying new oil and gas resources for the benefit of Angolaâ€™s future generationsâ€
AIOGACE will feature a three day conference, which will explore all aspects of the countryâ€™s oil and gas industry ranging from exploration to production to distribution.
