Sub-Saharan Africa Oil & Gas Handbook

October 20, 2015

Sub-Saharan Africa is home to long established hydrocarbon-producing countries, including Angola and Nigeria, as well as exciting new discoveries of onshore and offshore oil and gas, most notably the gas finds in the Rovuma Basin off the coast of Mozambique. Given the lack of infrastructure, regulatory challenges, and shifting paradigms governing policy and national oil companies, Africa's oil and gas sector remains significantly under-explored. The Sub-Saharan Africa Oil and Gas Handbook, however, seeks to guide the global oil and gas and investment community through the challenges and opportunities across different jurisdictions and to highlight those governments who welcome their investment.
