Angola output hits 1.7m bpd

Angola's oil production is averaging 1.7 million barrels per day, a level it would like to sustain, Oil Minister Jose Maria Botelho de Vasconcelos said today.

Botelho de Vasconcelos told Reuters that Angola was also mulling over a proposal to participate in Ghana's development of its offshore Jubilee oilfield.

"It is something we are considering," he said, following a two-day visit to Ghana by an Angolan delegation that included President Jose Eduardo dos Santos.
