Angola to raise September crude exports despite cut promises

In May, Angola pumped 1.28mln barrels per day

  

LONDON- Angola is set export 41 cargoes of crude oil in September versus 38 in August despite promising to better comply with OPEC+ production cuts, a loading programme shows.

Angola has committed to making up for its May and June overproduction by cutting more in July to September, two sources told Reuters this month.

In May, Angola pumped 1.28 million barrels per day (bpd), OPEC data showed, or 100,000 bpd more than its target.

It trimmed production to 1.24 million bpd in June, based on a Reuters survey, some 60,000 bpd above its target.
