Angolan government mobilises resources to secure fuel supply

8 May 2019

The Angolan government has announced the mobilisation of the necessary resources to completely stabilise the fuel supply market in the next few days, according to a statement from the Civil House of the President.

The statement, issued in Luanda on Tuesday at the end of a meeting attended by João Lourenço and fuel sector officials with the aim of reaching a quick solution to the shortage of liquid fuels experienced in Angola over the last few days.

The statement said there had been a lack of communication between state oil and fuel company Sonangol and the various state institutions, which had a negative effect on the fuel import process.

Sonangol explained the shortage of fuel at the country’s main fuel stations by saying that access to foreign exchange to import refined oil products had been difficult. (Macauhub)
