Equatorial Guinea open capital-intensive projects for investment in 2020

Equatorial Guinea capital-intensive projects open for investment in 2020 said Gabriel Obiang, minister for mines and hydrocarbons.

The capital- intensive projects include the construction of three oil refineries, liquefied petroleum gas strategic tanks, a Urea plant and the expansion of a compressed natural gas project.

Obiang said the 10 public-private, partnership-led projects will focus on downstream diversification and adding value to domestic crude production.

“2019 was a year in which we showed the world the potential of Equatorial Guinea. That was phase one. Phase two is the investment year.
