Across Africa – from the prolific northern countries like Egypt, Algeria and Libya, to the more mature oil and gas markets in the western part of the continent like Nigeria, Angola and Ghana, all the way to the eastern side, including Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique and Tanzania where oil and gas exploration is still emerging – there is increasing complexity all around. This complexity, coupled with changing oil prices and the recent COVID-19 pandemic, continues to bring about fast-paced market changes. In addition to multiple opportunities and challenges unique to Africa, many parts of the continent will struggle to grow or even maintain their economies in the face of declining oil and gas revenues from one side and the global shift to greener and cleaner energy sources from another side. How can the industry rise to meet these challenges and still embrace fresh opportunities from onshore to ultra-deepwater?
