4th African Gas Week
Radisson Edwardian Mayfair, London, United Kingdom
Africa’s gas-LNG game has come of age, with over 30 African countries holding gas resources, and 20 now with proven reserves, with more entering into production, and gas discoveries both proliferating and often large, some of world-class dimension.
Companies have upgraded their gas portfolio, redesigned strategies and enhanced investments in domestic and pipeline export gas, targeting Atlantic LNG Markets and Europe-destined gas consumers, as well as GTL in selected locales, in some instances synfuels for local offtake, and engaging a widening list of gas-power projects with independent private power, across a range of related cross-border markets.
Meanwhile, corporates, investors and financiers now tartet the gas-rich Maghreb and the Gulf of Guinea (with many gas monetisation projects in the pipeline, along with LNG ventures). Southern Africa’s offsore and onshore in shale gas and CMB, as well as the highly-promising East African frontier margins offshore and for onshore gas-power, soon probably to be a focus for potential LNG ventures for Asian markets.
