Artur Pereira, CEO of Angola LNG’s 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 cubic metres of propane, 59,000 cubic metres of butane, and 108,000 cubic metres of condensate.

The plant has a jetty dedicated to propane, butane and condensate loading and a second jetty for pressurised butane loadings which will serve the domestic market, the company said.
