Gabon Oil and Gas Report Q4 2017

Gabon Oil and Gas Report Q4 2017

BMI View:

Gabon's oil sector remains vulnerable to the decline in global oil prices, with reports of delaysto a key upstream project on the back of uncertain economic conditions. Continued upstream investment isindicative of the market's untapped potential, but above-ground worries ranging from industrial action tounattractive fiscal terms will remain obstacles to the sustained investment necessary to reverse decliningreserves and output.

Latest Updates And Forecasts

Gabon's exploration scene is currently dormant with large divestments by Shell and Total in the matureonshore and little-to-no activity in the country's deepwater offshore blocks. Given the large costsassociated with deepwater offshore activity, we expect drilling activity is unlikely to pick up over thecoming quarters as companies continue to cap expenditures. Despite promising offshore potential, wehighlight Gabon will need to significantly relax its fiscal terms if it is to secure new investment in itsflagging oil and gas sector, notably in the offshore.
