The main objective of the National Refining Company (SONARA) is to refine crude oil and supply the finished petroleum products like butane, gasoline, kerosene, jet fuel, gas oil and fuel oil to the national market.

This objective has successfully been achieved since the creation of the refinery with no shortages registered, and in compliance with given specifications and excellent quality.

SONARA also exports some of its finished products to CEMAC countries and markets along the West African coast, from Senegal to Namibia, not only to optimise the use of the capacity of its installations, but also to consolidate its presence and reputation in Africa.

In addition, the new port which went operational on 6th October 1995, enables the company to export its products to Europe, the United States of America, and South America.
