The National Fuels Society of Angola - Sonangol EP announces that on August 5, 2016, arrived in the city of Luena, eastern Moxico province, via the Benguela railway (CFB), the first containers of butane gas tanks for supply to the east of the country.
Note that the use of the railway, a safer means of transportation than by land normally used, allows the Sonangol Natural Gas - Sonagás, a subsidiary of Sonangol EP, increase of the product supply capacity not only to Moxico but also to the Lunda North and Lunda South provinces as well as other locations in Angola.
Consequently, people will have more alternatives to the use of firewood and charcoal, which represents a considerable contribution to the efforts that have been undertaken for the preservation of the environment.
Furthermore, this initiative of using the Railway Track Sonagas in partnership with CFB, will enhance the national railway infrastructure and increase the operating efficiency of the company and substantially reduce their costs with the transport of gas, factors that are within the challenges of the new management model of the Angolan oil sector.
