"The ‘occult science’ of petroleum” is the article written by Rui Amendoeira, that analyzes the oil industry, for the weekly edition of Mercado, published on the 1st February.

For the VdA Of-Counsel, “nobody knows exactly where the biggest oil reserves are located”, and its economic profitability is a variable element.

“Angola has the same uncertainty as other countries have. Anyway, reliable information points to an 8 and 9 billion barrels value. However, the recoverability of part of these reserves, mainly offshore, depends on the price per barrel”. Rui Amendoeira, expert in these matters, promises an article about this topic in a near future.
