LUANDA (Reuters) – Angola’s state oil company Sonangol will produce oil offshore Cuba by 2017 if the United States lifts a maritime blockade following a return to diplomatic relations between Havana and Washington, a senior Cuban minister said on Wednesday.

“The first hole would be ready for production between 2016 and 2017, depending on the location of the platform,” Ricardo Cabrisas Ruiz, Cuba’s vice president of the council of ministers, told Angolan state media.
