Historical background

Angola is rebuilding its country after the end of a 27-year civil war in 2002.

Fighting between the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), led by Jose Eduardo DOS SANTOS, and the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA), led by Jonas SAVIMBI, followed independence from Portugal in 1975.

Peace seemed imminent in 1992 when Angola held national elections, but fighting picked up again by 1996.

Angola became a member of OPEC in late 2006 and in late 2007 was assigned a production quota of 1.

9 million barrels a day (bbl/day), somewhat less than the 2-2.
