Angola Sends Envoy to South Sudan to Seek Oil Deal, Jornal Says

Feb. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Angola will send an envoy to South Sudan next week to negotiate an oil deal for state-owned oil company Sonangol EP, Novo Jornal reported, citing an unidentified company official.

President Jose Eduardo dos Santos has asked Lopo do Nascimento, a former Angolan prime minister, to travel to South Sudan’s capital of Juba to discuss Sonangol’s access to an oil block once owned by oil company Elf, the weekly newspaper said.

Sonangol has already won a tender to operate an oil field in South Sudan, Novo Jornal said, without providing details.
