Angola and Brazil strengthen cooperation in the oil sector – African markets

The National Petroleum, Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANPG) and the National Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels Agency of Brazil (ANP) signed, this Wednesday in Rio de Janeiro, a cooperation agreement for regulatory and inspection programs for exploration, development and production activities.

According to an ANGP note to which ANGOP had access, the signing took place during the Rio Oil & Gas Conference being held in Rio de Janeiro.

The agreement

The agreement signed by the chairman of the board of directors (PCA) of the ANPG, Paulino Jerónimo, and the director general of the ANP, Rodolfo Henrique de Saboia, will be valid for five years.

The agreement aims to establish cooperation in the areas of technical promotion for the strengthening of the oil and gas industry, as well as the transfer of knowledge related to technical standards and good practices in the oil industry.

For Paulino Jerónimo, the agreement formalizes a relationship of more than three years with the ANP, highlighting the experience of the counterpart agency and the relationship of brotherhood between the Angolan and Brazilian peoples.

“One of the points we want to strengthen is our regulatory framework. We want to acquire this experience that the ANP has”.

“The relationship between Angola and Brazil is transcendental, and this agreement reinforces the commitment between governments to cement the relationship in the field of hydrocarbons,” he said.

Rodolfo de Saboia pleaded for the relevance of the agreement, which he considers very promising.

The official also underlined the relationship of brotherhood between the peoples, pointing out that the agreement transcends the interest of the two countries in the exploitation of their natural resources and hydrocarbons.

“Brazil and Angola have a common past, a close culture with the same origin and a very close feeling of brotherhood”.

“The cooperation extends beyond these economic activities, but it is in this that we hope to achieve an even greater proximity between the two countries”.

“This proximity goes through this mutual exchange of experience and knowledge that each country can offer”, he underlined.

The cooperation, subject of the agreement, will be carried out through the periodic exchange of information and experiences, the carrying out of joint studies and surveys, as well as the training and capacity building of human resources.

The ANPG participates in Rio Oil & Gas, from September 26 to 29, with a delegation led by the PCA and composed of directors, managers and technicians, with a stand where it promotes the Angolan oil potential.

Angola and Brazil

Angola and Brazil have maintained diplomatic and political relations since the independence of Angola and, within the framework of the strategic partnership, there are 70 cooperation projects.

Brazil was the first country to recognize the Republic of Angola after the proclamation of independence on November 11, 1975.
