Angola to Boost Crude Oil Exports for August to 34-Month High

Angola, Africa’s second-largest oil producer, will increase its crude exports in August to the most in 34 months, after one extra cargo of Kissanje grade was added, according to a final loading program obtained by Bloomberg.

The nation plans to ship 62 consignment totaling 58.96 million barrels, or 1.9 million barrels a day, the most since October 2009, the plan showed. This compares with 51 lots amounting to 1.58 million barrels a day in July.

Kissanje exports were raised to five shipments from the original plan for four, the schedule showed.

Loading programs are monthly schedules of crude shipments compiled by field operators to allow buyers and sellers to plan their supply and trading activities.

Details of the program are as follows. Cargo sizes are listed in multiples of 1,000 barrels.
