The future of gas in Africa

Africa’s LNG export capacity is expected to increase in the coming years, with countries such as Nigeria expected to increase production from 22 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) to over 31 mtpa. Mozambique also wants to increase its production from 2.2 million tonnes per year to more than 43 million tonnes per year by the end of the decade. Growth in production, coupled with new discoveries in Namibia, Ivory Coast and Senegal, confirms the continent’s potential role as a global LNG exporter.
A critical exploration of the future of the gas and LNG industry in Africa took place at the “Investing in Energy in Africa” forum, held in Paris. In the context of African deep-water gas, LNG and FLNG projects, countries like Senegal, the Republic of Congo and Mozambique are asserting themselves as formidable exporters, at the forefront of a dynamic of transformation. Simultaneously, critical gas initiatives in Ivory Coast, Nigeria and Angola are poised to catalyze national industrialization efforts, heralding a new era of economic growth and energy sustainability across the continent.
Sponsored by independent oil company Perenco, the discussion covered market outlook, investment trends, regulatory strategies, technological advancements and new players in the African LNG landscape.
