Congo Brazzaville Oil and Gas Report Q2 2016

Congo Brazzaville Oil and Gas Report Q2 2016

BMI View: Congo-Brazzaville's oil production and exports are expected to grow robustly until 2018 as thenew production gradually comes online from a number of new fields. Risks to our forecasts lie to the upsideas the lower price environment supports increased interest in the development of small, shallow waterdiscoveries such as the Nene Marine field.

Key Forecasts and Developments

Despite exploration success in 2015, the long-term trend is negative, with reserves expected to fall awayin our forecast period. The decline in the oil price adds further downside risk to our forecast as oilcompanies focus on proven areas and avoided frontier plays such as the Republic of the Congo (Congo-Brazzaville). However on the upside, opportunity lies in the shallow water exploration, such as the NeneMarine field.

SOCO International has had its exploration licence extended for another twelve months on the MarineXI licence with dialogue ongoing with the government regarding commercialisation options. SOCO wasexpected to spud an exploration well in February 2016 at their Mer Profonde sud licence.

Philia has completed 3D surveys of Marine XIII offshore Congo-Brazzaville. The survey acquired237sq km of full-fold data in the northern half of the block, assessing the prospective pre-salt and postsalthydrocarbon plays in the sedimentary Congo Basin.
