Angola - Post-Salt & Onshore Prospects.

Sonangol E&P has since mid-2014 focused more on post-salt prospects in deep waters both in the 11 blocks given in late 2011 and in other areas being offered this year, as well as in onshore blocks.

In 2012, the NOC began onshore exploration in the Cabinda Norte Block; but the operating conditions have become problematic as the Front for the Liberation of the Enclave of Cabinda, a separatist group, remains active in that region.

Sonangol E&P in 2014 was given the rights to onshore Blocks 2,4,11 & 12 in the onshore part of Kwanza Basin. These were excluded from the onshore blocks offered to IOCs with the results of the auctions expected this year.
