Sonangol Logistics imported 5.7 million cubic metres of fuel in 2014, about 80 percent of current consumption of Angola, said Wednesday in Luanda, the executive director for the area of ​​industrial development and local content, Mateus Neto.

The director, who was speaking at a meeting to present the group’s 2014 results, said that the remaining 1.3 million cubic metres, about 20 percent, were purchased from the Luanda refinery, according to news agency Angop.

Neto noted that last year Sonangol Logistics sold about 5.6 million cubic metres of fuel to Sonangola Distribuidora, about 1.4 million cubic metres to Pumangol and the rest to Encom, a company that is based outside Angola.

The distributor, in turn, last year sold 3.3 million cubic metres of gasoline, 1.3 million cubic metres of diesel and 45,000 cubic metres of kerosene.

“It is the responsibility Sonangol Distribuidora to distribute the products throughout the country, especially those most consumed by the population, which are gasoline, diesel and kerosene,” he said. (macauhub/AO)
