    LONDON, May 29 (Reuters) – Heavier oils from Angola and Congo remained steady at high prices on Friday, while Nigerian oil fared lower amid a large glut of unsold cargoes.

    * A cargo of Congolese Djeno crude was being offered for dated Brent plus $1.50.
    * Angolan Girassol was being offered for $3.30, down about 20 cents from last week.
    * “Numbers are very strong, pushed from China,” one trader said.
    * With around 50 Nigerian cargoes yet to be sold for June and July, oil from Africa’s number two exporter continues to face a difficult path to market amid sluggish demand, especially from Europe.
    * Crude output by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in May and April showed compliance to a production cut pact of 19% from Nigeria and 73% from Angola.
