Luanda — The Angola LNG Company will collect, process and trade, each year, about 5.2 tons of liquefied natural gas, besides producing also propane, butane and condensed gas, at the firm's premises in Soyo Municipality, in the northern Zaire Province.

This project is intended to be a solution for the reduction of carbon emission and it is considered a source of clean energy.

According to the document Angola LNG Company shareholders are Sonangol (22.8%), Chevron (36.4%), BP (13.6%), ENI (13.6%) and Total (13.6%).

Angola is sub-Saharan Africa's second main producer of crude-oil.
