National Oil Company Sonangol 

In 1976, right after independence, the colonial oil production company in Angola, ANGOL, was nationalized. The company that was formed in Luanda, with the state as sole owner, was named Sonangol, and took over several of the foreign companies’ infrastructures and employees. Sonangol still has a crucial role in the country’s oil industry, both as a commercial company, operator and industry regulator.

Subsea Oil and Gas Production in Deep Waters

In 1996 it became clear that Angola was facing a new oil age when the French company Elf found oil in deep water 140 km off the coast of Luanda. In the following years, many international oil companies were involved in exploration and constantly new discoveries in deep and ultra-deep water. From 2004, oil production increased drastically, so that Angola competed with Nigeria to be Africa’s largest oil producer.
