Approximate reading time: 1 minute

About 300 kilometres of a network of crude oil transportation pipelines, managed by the Angolan Oil Society (Somoil) in Soyo Municipality, northern Zaire Province, were renewed by the mentioned company in the past ten years.

The information was given last Friday to the press by Somoil’s director for operations, José Maria, who explained that the company replaced the old pipelines network with a new one, with a view to avoiding the leaks recorded before.

“We are focused on renewing the pipelines, since they are very old, for we want to improve the operation levels more and more and protect the environment and guarantee safety for the population”, he stressed.

José Maria also disclosed that the company has made contacts with various national and foreign firms with a view to signing an agreement for the inspection of the Somoil’s crude oil transportation pipelines, whose network is of about 700 kilometres.
