This was said on Tuesday in Houston (Texas) by the executive director of the Angolan Oil Company (Sonangol), Edson dos Santos, on the fringes of Ceraweek, one of the largest oil and gas world forums, where Sonangol is participating with a delegation headed by its Chairperson of Board of Directors, Isabel dos Santos.
The executive director responsible for research and production, logistics, distribution, shipping and sonagás was answering the journalists’ questions, about the company's participation in the event and the internal work that has been developed in the national oil company, historically.
He said that the Angola LNG project had some design problems, but that is all solved.
This, he added, results from the work between Sonangol and some of its partners, so that since the last quarter of 2016 the LNG plant has been operating positively.
As a result, he said, Angola has stopped importing butane gas because at the moment all butane gas produced in the country comes from the LNG plant and the company expects to end imports of it in 2017.
Without disclosing data, Edson Santos also added that there are forecasts for its export.
Regarding production, he also stressed that Angola LNG made seven shipments in 2016, but in 2017 there is a forecast for 58 shipments.
