Oil and gas

Support across the full value chain

In the last decade, Africa’s upstream operations have spread from a historic focus on West Africa to be truly pan-continental. This is being driven by exploration in countries such as Ghana, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda where new oil and gas reserves have been discovered. Exploration also continues in Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and beyond.

With the latest iteration of South Africa’s Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act expected to be completed by the end of 2017 and the Integrated Energy Resource Plan nearing completion, South Africa is set to leverage its largely unexplored and underdeveloped oil and gas sector to re-ignite growth able to drive broad and inclusive participation across the entire economy.
