The Oil & Gas sector continues to experience significant growth, with East Africa ramping up in its discoveries and market potential, Angola LNG coming online and new pre-salt discoveries in offshore West Africa. The potential continues to attract and excite investors from around the globe. At PwC, we constantly monitor key developments in the industry, analysing the potential impact that they will have on our clients and generating solutions to assist companies in managing these ever-changing dynamics.

This review of developments in the African oil & gas industry is our fourth in a series of reviews of the sector. It draws upon the valuable experience and views of industry players across the African continent, including international oil companies operating in Africa, national oil companies, oilfield service companies, independent oil companies and industry commentators, to provide insight into the latest developments impacting the industry on the continent.

We take a look at what has happened in the last 12 months in the major and emerging African oil & gas markets, and include a selection of country profiles to highlight developments in a number of locations.
