The Republic of Angola is in southern Africa bordered by Namibia to the south, the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north and Zambia to the east. Its west coast is on the Atlantic Ocean. Luanda is its capital city. The country has vast mineral and petroleum reserves, and its economy has achieved double-digit average growth since the 1990s. In recent years this growth has accelerated – making Angola the fastest growing economy in Africa and one of the fastest in the world. From 2001–2015, Angola had the world's highest annual average GDP growth, at 11.1%.

As one of the fastest growing economies in the world, Angola is also seeing sustained growth in domestic demand for oil. Since we entered the market in 2004 we have been achieving organic growth by investing in better systems, processes and talented people.
Supply in Angola will benefit from the opening of the world’s largest Conventional Buoy Mooring (CBM) System in Luanda Bay. The fuel loading buoy anchored offshore serves a strategic mooring point for Africa and it will allow a wide range of carriers to berth while loading or offloading oil products. The CBM is located next to our Fishing Port terminal in Luanda Bay, which has been extended and now has a total storage capacity of 184,700m³. The project at Luanda Bay means that we now have two new important channels for the cost-effective and secure supply of fuel in Africa. Whilst the facility started operations in April 2015, the construction of all tanks is expected to be fully finalised in 2016.
We are also proud to play a critical role in supporting improvements to the country’s infrastructure. So far, 6,000 km of roads have been built using bitumen supplied by Puma Energy.
We provide logistics and management services for a strategically placed third-party owned fleet of modern, well-equipped bunker barges offshore from Angola and in the port of Luanda. These barges deliver marine gas-oil to oil rigs and marine gas-oil and fuel-oil to vessels in the region.
In the last three years we have provided employment opportunities and training for over 2,500 Angolans and supporting entrepreneurs is a key part of our strategy.
Our retail business is a service our Angola customers can rely on. We developed the first retail convenience network and the first non-bank fleet card in Angola. Our Pumangol business offers 24 hour service stations and convenience stores, which operate under the Super7 Express brand. We currently stock 1,500 different items across our network of 78 Angolan retail sites and we endeavour to stock local products whenever possible.

Luanda is a busy a cosmopolitan capital situated on the coast with good beaches nearby and excellent nightlife. Parque Nacional da Kissama is a vast and remarkable wildlife park with beautiful scenery and amazing wildlife, such as elephant and antelope. Our favourite adventure is driving to Kissama's grassland to see antelope unique to Angola. For a taste of Angola, we recommend Calulu de peixe (fish stew) and the excellent local coffee.
