Few places in the world measure up to the ongoing oil exploration significance of Angola, according to oil experts. This country is the second biggest oil producer in Africa after Nigeria and eventually it may surpass Nigeria. What is it about Angola’s geology that favors so much oil production and what is the long term future of the oil industry here? The Angola Field Group invites you to a presentation: Everyman’s Guide to Angola’s Petroleum Geology and Oil Industry at the Viking Club, Thursday February 20, at 8:00 PM with Geologist Tako Koning who will explain in layperson’s terms the subsurface geology that has led to the success of the country’s oil industry and what it means for the future. Tako, a Holland-born and Canada-raised geologist has over 40 years experience in the oil industry, including 18 years in Angola. He worked with Texaco for 30 years in Canada, Indonesia, Nigeria and Angola; he retired in 2002 and continues to work in Angola as an oil consultant.
