Angola and the Republic of Congo are discussing in Brazzaville issues related to the strengthening of oil cooperation between the two countries, particularly focused on oil exploration in the Lianzi joint area.

According to Angolan news agency Angop, the meetings are between the Angolan ambassador to Brazzaville, Vicente Muanda, and the Congolose Oil and Gas Minister, Jean Marc Thystere Tchicaya.

Production in the Lianzi field is the result of an agreement signed between Angola and the Republic of Congo in 2002, with a view to joint exploration of cross-border geological structures.

The field was discovered in 2004 and includes two production zones.

Currently, the Lianzi project (Blocks 14, Angola and, Haute Mer – Congo Brazzaville) has an estimated production of 36,000 barrels of oil per day, with 50% for each country.
