Experts in mineral resources debate challenges facing the sector in Angola


Geological workflow, drilling and geological modulation applied to the oil and gas industry were the topics presented on 29 and 30 May at the IGEO, at a meeting organized by Seequent under the slogan “Geological Workflow – From Drilling to Decision”.

Opening the event, the Secretary of State for Mineral Resources, Jânio Corrêa Victor, said that the initiative aimed to bring together specialists in prospecting and exploration of mineral resources, oil and gas to promote debate on the challenges facing the sector in Angola.

Among these challenges are the techniques that should be applied to reduce the risks in the exploration and production workflow linked to geological modulation.

“Throughout this journey, the technical training of human capital has been strengthened, first of all, then the improvement of equipment and, above all, the improvement of geocentric knowledge of the national territory,” said the government official.

The official also explained that the current potential for providing services in the areas of geology, geophysics, geochemistry, hydrogeology, drilling and related specialties are part of the current policy of challenges associated with the sector, which constitute the materialization of the objectives enshrined in the National Development Plan.

Jânio Corrêa Victor also said that the event addresses the challenges of the mining sector with a focus on modeling techniques for deposit characterization.

“State-of-the-art technology is available, and companies are investing and exploring new reserves. The sector is constantly developing, with national and international companies interested in various sub-sectors, such as diamonds, copper, rare earths and oil”, he stressed.
