Angola: New gas, marginal field laws

Issue 370 - 01 Jun 2018 | 1 minute read
President João Lourenço has signed decrees setting out specific terms to regulate the exploration and production of natural gas and halving tax rates for the development of marginal fields as the new government seeks to maximise earnings from hydrocarbons. The decrees were published in the Official Gazette on 18 May.
