Angolan state-owned oil company Sonangol said on Tuesday it had signed a
memorandum of understanding with Venezuela's national oil firm PDVSA and
its Cuban counterpart Cupet to develop two oil fields in Venezuela.
Sonangol said in a statement the three companies would form a new
company to exploit Venezuela's Migas and Melones Oeste fields in the
state of Anzoatequi.
The new company's initial production is expected to reach 20,000 barrels
of oil per day and have total production of 94 million barrels in five
years, Sonangol said.
Venezuela's PDVSA will have a 60 percent stake in the new company while
Sonangol and Cupet will own 20 percent each.
