Upstream Promises Remain Constrained By Above Ground Woes


We have identified five main themes that will be critical for the African Oil & Gas sector throughout 2013, as they will determine the performance of the continent during the rest of the decade:

  • We see increasing interest in West African subsalt exploration by major international oil companies (IOCs) as it becomes more evident that the large unexplored offshore acreages contain significant potential.

  • We continue to see increasing gas potential on the continent. On one hand, many developments concerning liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities are taking shape over 2013, with Angola marking a milestone with its first shipment in June 2013 to Brazil; on the other, we are increasingly bullish on east African gas frontier, where we forecast annual gas production reaching 9.7bn cubic metres (bcm) in Tanzania and 19.5bcm in Mozambique by 2022.
