The Luanda Refinery has recently reached an important milestone, with the successful performance of the tests of hydrogen use for energy production.

In addition to the recovery of one of the turbines, which had been out of service since 2017, one of the main objectives of the project was to take advantage of the excess gas, rich in hydrogen, produced by the new Gasoline Production Complex.

With the completion of this phase, which had its first run on June 8, it will be possible to reduce gas flaring, consequently reducing greenhouse emissions to the atmosphere, thus saving a considerable amount of heavy naphtha, a highly flammable product. This reinforces Sonangol's commitment to the energy transition and climate protection.
