Angola’s crude oil exports are expected to decrease during the fall months. The south african nation is expected to export under 1.8m b/d across 56 cargoes, in September, due to the absence of Dalia crude oil, which was scheduled to export roughly 222,000 b/d during the month. While October export volumes are projected to fall by 366,000 b/d to reach 1.43m b/d across 46 cargoes, as a key grade enters maintenance, representing a 10-year low in terms of bpd. These volumes have not been witness since October 2006, Business Recorder reported.
