Standard Bank is pleased to welcome senior representatives from various National Oil and Gas Companies to our Skills Transfer Workshop in Johannesburg from 3 - 7 October 2016.
We have created this page to provide a central location for relevant information, opinion pieces, and research material on the oil and gas landscape in Africa.
As the focus mounts on Africa as a key player in oil and gas markets, Standard Bank is excited about the development of National Oil and Gas companies, as well as energy companies on the continent.
At Standard Bank, we operate on the premise that Africa is our home, we drive her growth. We are dedicated to the development of Africa and the effective utilisation of our continent’s natural resources.
We have concluded major deals in the oil and gas sector in several African countries over the past few years. As such, we keep a careful eye on developments the potential of African Oil and Gas. We continue to support the development of African National Oil Companies into world class international energy companies on the back of a keen appreciation of the potential of the sector as the largest bank in Africa.
As we explore the various developments that have taken place in the oil and gas sector, the attached research material on The Potential impact of LNG on African Gas to Power is particularly enlightening. LNG, through its direct and indirect linkages to oil pricing, has been affected by the sustained drop in oil prices. A key question is whether Africa will benefit from what are expected larger volumes of natural gas at lower prices than in the 2010-2015 period.

We look forward to a productive opportunity for interactions that drive the African oil and gas industry forward, insights to inform debates on the future of oil in Africa, and rising opportunities in the gas space on the continent.
