ABUJA, Feb 23 (Reuters) – Angola’s offshore oil production is likely to be double that of Nigeria by 2020, Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) said on Tuesday.

“By 2020, Angola’s offshore production is likely to be double that of Nigeria,” Shell’s Executive Vice President for sub-Saharan Africa, Ann Pickard, told an industry conference in Abuja.
