About Gabon National Oil Company
Gabon, one of the oil and gas producing nations of Africa is coming more alive and buoyant in its effort to become a premier producer in the continent. So far, the country has shown seriousness to become a top producing nation and has instituted helpful decrees to commercialize the State’s involvement in the exploration and production of hydrocarbon. Under the leadership of H.E. Ali Bongo, the president of Gabon, the State established a national oil company called called Société National des Hydrocarbures du Gabon (SNHG).

Notable among them is the commercial lifting of its first cargo of Total Gabon Terminal of about 650,000 barrels of oil (Rabi Blend Crude) in December 2012 at the economic city of Port Gentel. That was the first time the State was involved in such venture.
The national oil company has assets in fields such as Obangue (100%), Remboue, Batanga, Bende, and also has explorations assets in blocks such : Maghena (operator Addax), Agali (Operator Anadarko) and many others.
